Percent of Lone Parent Families, 2016

Notes: A census family is a married couple (with or without children), a common-law couple (with or without children) or a lone parent family. These figures exclude persons living alone. Lone-parent families tend to have lower socioeconomic status, in part because there is only one adult with income and in part because employment is more difficult to find with young children at home.
