Title Household structure
Alternate Title Single-person Households [56]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract In Europe as a whole, today more than one in ten families are single parent families. The number of such households has risen significantly over recent decades. If you look at the socio-demographic structure of such families, 85% of them consist of mothers with children. Often this family type has to be supported by the social system to soften the considerable disadvantages vis-à-vis “normal” families arising from the fact that in such families the parent must take on responsibility for bringing up the children as well as earning a living for the entire household.
