A new report, “Fathers’ Involvement With Their Children: United States, 2006-2010,” is now available on the NSFG webpage www.cdc.gov/nchs/nsfg.htm or more directly athttp://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/
The report, by NSFG team analysts Jo Jones and William Mosher, describes how frequently fathers did activities with or for their preschool-aged (under 5) and their school-aged children (5-18) in the 4 weeks before the interview. Results are presented separately for children he lives with, and for children he does not live with, using the 2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG). The report also presents data on how good a job fathers think they are doing. Characteristics of fathers include his age, his Hispanic origin and race, his marital and cohabiting status, and his education.
