Slides showing the results of research into the role of fathers at home and at work in the 21st century. We've examined biological and social fatherhood and all types of fathers, including those who live on their own and lone fathers. We find out if the classic British earner household of a father working full-time and a mother working part-time is still relevant and examine changes to fathers' working hours. Finally, we look at how involved parents are in the lives of their children, and whether things are different for fathers and mothers. This research was carried out by NatCen Social Research and the University of East Anglia. It was funded by the ESRC. Although principally focused on fathers in the UK, we also examine how the realities of fatherhood vary across Europe.
