This resource provides data on father involvement. Fathers—and father-like figures—play an important role in the lives of children. The time fathers spend engaged in activities with their children and the financial supports they help provide are linked to the health and wellbeing of children at all ages. This is true whether a father lives with his child or not. Notably, fathers today are spending more time than in the past with their children.
