  • I find this set of results odd too.
  • While I was working on this data on Monday I was listening to CC Chapman on digital dads tv. He was talking about sex and the idea of an open mariage. I thought it was interesting that 53% of men have sex less than 3 times per week.

  • What is The DADvocate Project
    DADvocates  – Today’s dads are a new generation of dads and while  I don’t think we have a great definition, I believe we are finding ways to be more involved in family life. We are doing jobs that allow us to be home more and we are finding ways to be more present when participating in family activities. We help drive parenting decisions that were previously made by women and we are not the Peter Griffins that dads are portrayed as on TV.
    Since I have no ability to prove this without research and evidence, I’ve undertaken a project to help define who we DADvocates are and I need your help to complete the project.
    The DADvocate Project consists of three phases:
    1.    The Survey – this is an in-depth look at who you are and what you do. We discuss how much time you spend in the various areas of life including, family, finances, work, physical fitness and much more. We are publishing survey results as we go. You can read about the survey results in various posts on this blog.
    2.    Interviews – The interviews will be the second phase of the DADvocate project. Interviews will go in-depth with some of the participants of the DADvocate survey. We will talk about experiences growing up, College, and work. We will ask about the best moments you have had with your children and how you spend your time trying to be the best dad you can be.
    3.    Book – The final part of the DADvocate project will be a published book that tells the story of who we (dads) are and why we give all we give to being a parent, how that includes our work and our responsibilities to our wives and ourselves.
    You can participate In the survey by going to http://www.thedadvocateproject.com/survey

  • Father Income = total Family Income
    ©The DADvocate Project – Kevin Metzger
    • The 46% of the dads earn the entire family income.
    • 73% of Dad earn at least 50% of the family income.
    • 23% of dads earn <$30,000, 70% of those families make under $75,000 total income.
    • 38% of all families make under $75k
  • Income Anomaly's
    One person claimed to have sex more than 10 X per month and make over $50,000,000. They didn’t leave contact info so I consider it an anomaly.
    Another person claims to make 200 – 250k per year but said the total family was “none of your business”. That combination makes this record suspect.
