United Kingdom (UK): single/lone parent families in 2019, by parent's gender

This statistic displays the number of lone parent families (with dependent and non-dependent children) in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2019, by the parent's gender. In that year, there were 1.6 million lone mothers with dependent children in the UK. Dependent children are those living with their parent and either (a) aged under 16, or (b) aged 16 to 18 in full-time education, excluding children aged 16 to 18 who have a spouse, partner or child living in the household. The weekly cost of a lone parent's first child is more expensive when compared to a child that is raised by two parents, this trend continues throughout the first seventeen years of the child's life. The most expensive period regarding the weekly cost of a dependent child's life in a lone-parent household, occurs within the first two years, before decreasing thereafter, until the age of eleven.
