Recent research has documented the complex living arrangements of today's children (FP-13-19), but less is known about the living arrangements of parents, particularly fathers. Because mothers are far more likely to have full-time physical custody of their children in non-intact families, many fathers do not live with their children. However, until recently, the research community lacked data that identified the living arrangements for all of men's children. This profile uses the 2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), one of the few data sources that collects information directly from men aged 15-44 about their children, to provide a contemporary snapshot of whether fathers with only minor children live with all of their children. For each child, fathers directly reported whether they live with their child all or some of the time; these reports do not incorporate visitation unless it occurs frequently enough for a father to consider his child(ren) actually living with him at least part-time.
