Italy: number of couples with children 2012-2017, by average number of children

Number of couples with children in Italy from 2012 to 2017, by average number of children (in 1,000)

Italy: number of couples with children 2012-2017, by average number of children The number of couples with children in Italy has decreased over the last years. In 2012, there were roughly 9.2 million couples with children, most of which had only one kid. Five years later, the number amounted to around 8.9 million pairs, with only 0.9 million having three or more kids. In 2017, couples with children made up about 32.6 percent of the Italian population.
More and more single parents in Italy

Whereas the number of couples with kids is decreasing, when it comes to single parents a countertendency can be observed. The number of mothers and fathers raising their offspring alone increased over the years, regardless of the number of the children.

Single parents in other European countries

An increase in the number of parents raising their children alone can also be observed in other European countries, like in the Netherlands, where the number of single mothers and fathers has steadily grown over the last years. On the other hand, Germany registered a drop in the total number of single parents with underaged children, with figures for single fathers growing to 190 thousand in 2017.
