New Census Numbers Circulating

Should have flagged that the New York Post was the first (that I've seen) to use the new at-home dad numbers in a story this week that focused on single parents. Actually, the single-parent thing is well worth noting. There are 2.5 million single dads (up from 2.1 a decade ago), which is a big number, no matter how you look at it. And yet the number of stories I've seen on those guys is way, way less than stories on at-home dads.

On the topic of numbers, I feel for Roger Anderson of the Racine Journal-Times who wrote a nice at-home dad profile last week, but led the story with the outdated numbers ...
