This profile presents a demographic portrait of nonresident fatherhood by describing the characteristics of nonresident fathers (15-44). Supplemental comparisons of nonresident fathers versus other men (15-44) without a nonresident child are also discussed. While this profile primarily focuses on the characteristics of nonresident fathers, a previous family profile “Nonresident Father Visitation” (FP-12-02) examines visitation across the demographic characteristics discussed in this profile.
