A National Survey of Dads' Attitudes on Fathering
Pop's Culture is a national telephone survey of 701 American men selected to be representative of American fathers age 18 and older with at least one biological or adopted child (not a stepchild) under the age of 18. The survey was conducted by Harris Interactive and the report was written by Norval Glenn, Ph.D. and David Popenoe, Ph.D.
The survey reveals important, detailed information about today's fathers and their attitudes towards parenting, marriage, and relationships.
- Ninety-one percent of respondents agreed there is a father absence crisis in America
- Only slightly more than half of the fathers agreed that they felt adequately prepared for fatherhood
- "Work responsibilities" was named as the largest obstacle to being a good father
- Over 50% of respondents agreed that fathers are replaceable by mothers and other men
