Men's Fertility & Fatherhood: 2014

Report Number P70-162
Lindsay M. Monte & Brian Knop


The 2014 Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) marked the first time the U.S. Census Bureau collected full fertility histories from all adults, both men and women. In the report that follows, we use the 2014 SIPP to provide a snapshot of men’s fertility. This report provides information on fertility rates, total children ever born, completed fertility, and childlessness by selected demographic characteristics. We also present information on the timing and sequencing of men’s biological children, as well as both demographic and economic markers for men based on the age of their youngest child and their coresidence with children. Additionally, we include information on father involvement and child well-being by type of father/child relationship, whether biological, step, or adoptive.
