Data Sources on Parents

Single Parents (Divorced and Unmarried)

The Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study is following a cohort of nearly 5,000 children born in the United States between 1998 and 2000. Parent interviews collect information on attitudes, relationships, parenting behavior, demographic characteristics, mental and physical health, economic and employment status, neighborhood characteristics, and program participation. In-home interviews collect information on children's cognitive and emotional development, health, and home environment. The study addresses certain questions, such as (1) What are the conditions and capabilities of unmarried parents, especially fathers? (2) What is the nature of the relationships between unmarried parents? (3) How do children born into these families fare? and (4) How do policies and environmental conditions affect families and children?

As part of its Parent/Family section, Child, Youth, and Families Education and Research Network offers access to an array of guides, research articles on parenting and divorce in its Divorce/Separation section. Papers include but are not limited to Effects of Divorce on Children.

The Center for Divorce Education (CDE) is a non-profit corporation created to educate the public, the court system, and law and policymakers about divorce-related issues, with a goal of minimizing the negative impact of divorce for families. Its comprehensive education program for divorcing families, Children in the Middle, has received the Positive Parenting Award by the National Council for Children's Rights and the Active Parenting Award by the Children's Rights Council, and was named a Model Program by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
