Fatherhood & Family
Family life is changing, but dads matter as much as ever
Educational and labor market trends have transformed the economics of the family. In 41% of U.S. households today, women are the main breadwinner. But while educational and labor market trends have transformed the economics of the family, cultural changes around fatherhood have lagged far behind. The result is a national “dad deficit” that not only affects women and children, but also hurts millions of American men who are disconnected from their families.
