Sixty-nine percent of children lived with two parents in 2016.

Twenty-three percent lived with a single mother, 4 percent lived with a single father, and 4 percent did not live with either parent.[1]

These figures, from the 2016 Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement, reflect dramatic changes over the past couple of generations.

In 1960, 88 percent of children lived with two parents. At that time, 8 percent lived with a single mom, 1 percent lived with a single father, and 3 percent did not live with either parent.
