Non-Marital Childbearing: Trends, Reasons, and Public Policy Interventions
In 2006, a record 38.5% of all U.S. births were non-marital births. Many of these children grow up in mother-only families. Children who grow up with only one biological parent in the home are more likely to be financially worse off and have worse socio-economic outcomes (even after income differences are taken into account) compared to children who grow up with both biological parents in the home. Contents of this report: Key Findings; Trends in Non-marital Births: 1940-2006; Numbers, Percentages, and Rates; Characteristics of Unwed Mothers; Fathers of Children Born Outside of Marriage; Reasons for the Increase in Non-marital Childbearing; Impact of Non-marital Births on Families; Public Policy Interventions; Future Prospects.
