Abstract

Single parenthood is a social phenomenon that has always been in existence and is as old as mankind. There was a rapid and drastic increase in the number of single-parent families in the latter half of the twentieth century. This change has been used by some to argue that we are witnessing the breakdown of the family with negative effects for children, families, and society. Single-parent families have been present in all societies over time. The numbers of single parents’ families have increased drastically and it is gaining a global dimension. Regardless of how family diversity is viewed the increase in and prevalence of families headed by one parent has a major influence on the social, economic, and political context of family life. In view of this background, this study has empirically examined the socio-economic factors influencing single parenthood in Kaduna North Local Government Area. To address the problem of study, three research questions were raised. The researcher adopted a survey research design and In-depth interview (IDI). A total of one hundred and eighty-nine (189) respondents comprised the target of the study. Questionnaire and in-depth interview guide were the instruments used for data collection. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), frequency tables and percentages (%) were employed in the data analysis.
