Fatherless Homes At Risk

Some sobering statistics:

  • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes–U.S. D.H.H.S., Bureau of the Census
  • 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes–Center for Disease Control
  • 80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes–Criminal Justice and Behavior, Vol. 14, p. 403-26
  • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes–National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools
  • 70% of juveniles in state operated institutions come from fatherless homes–U.S. Dept. of Justice
  • 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home–Fulton County Georgia jail populations & Texas Dept. of Corrections

Translating these – Children from a fatherless home are:

  • 5 times more likely to commit suicide
  • 32 times more likely to run away
  • 20 times more likely to have behavioral disorders
  • 14 times more likely to commit rape
  • 9 times more likely to drop out of school
  • 10 times more likely to abuse chemical substances
  • 9 times more likely to end up in a state operated institution
  • 20 times more likely to end up in prison
