Snapshot of Fatherhood From First-Ever Men’s Fertility Report From U.S. Census Bureau

Component ID: #ti650471270

What percentage of men are married and have children with their spouse? How many men in their early 30s are fathers? What is the average amount of time between the birth of men’s first and last child?

On the eve of Father’s Day celebrations, we provide a demographic snapshot of fatherhood in the United States in an interactive visualization.

Component ID: #ti535417129

The data visualization draws on the Men’s Fertility and Fatherhood: 2014 report released this week, the first Census Bureau report to detail men’s fertility and fathering. The data come from the 2014 Survey of Income and Program Participation, Wave 1.

Explore the data visualization to learn about the share of men who are fathers, different trajectories of fatherhood, and characteristics (including age, marital status and education) that shape fatherhood.
