This chapter offers an overview of the demographic features of the contemporary context in relation to fathers, fathering, and fatherhood. It addresses questions such as: How much are fathers doing with their children? What about housework? Although most of the research highlights trends in the UK, experiences from other countries are also drawn on. The primary aim is to set the context for discussions in subsequent chapters in relation to theories, policies, and practices.
