Data Sources on Parents

Step Parents

Demographic Information
The U.S. Census Bureau collected general data about households, including households with Stepfamilies as part of its 2000 census. This data, with some analysis, is available in the special report Adopted Children and Stepchildren: 2000.

The Stepfamily Association of America (SAA) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing support and guidance to families with children from previous relationships by providing information, education, support, and advocacy for stepfamilies and those who work with them. Its article, The Role of the Stepparent: How Similar are the Views of Stepparents, Parents, and Stepchildren? outlines research findings which indicate that the quality of stepfamily life is very much related to how the role of the stepparent is carried out. SAA also provides a factsheet based on U.S. Census data, on divorce, remarriage, and stepfamilies.
