What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of children living in single-parent family households (with a male or female householder and no spouse present) out of all children living in family households.
Why this is important: 
Adults and children in single-parent households are at a higher risk for adverse health effects, such as emotional and behavioral problems, compared to their peers. Children in such households are more likely to develop depression, smoke, and abuse alcohol and other substances. Consequently, these children experience increased risk of morbidity and mortality of all causes. Similarly, single parents suffer from lower perceived health and higher risk of mortality.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 3,141 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
