Today's Dads Are More Than Just a Paycheck

New Survey Shows More Than Half of Employed Men Feel Torn Between Work and Home

Who Are These Guys?

When first glimpsing the demographics, it doesn't appear much has changed. Of the men who responded to our survey, 81 percent are married and 85 percent are fathers. Eighty-one percent work full-time and 70 percent of men surveyed said they are the primary breadwinners in their family.

But in keeping with the statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau in 2011 -- which reports the number of stay-at-home dads in America has risen to 154,000 -- 3.2 percent of the men we surveyed said they are now the full-time, primary caregiver for their children. That number pales in comparison to the number of stay-at-home moms across the country, but it’s a testament to dad's increasing role on the homefront.
