Center for Research on Child Wellbeing [Princeton University] Working Paper: “Fathers’ Investments of Money and Time across Residential Contexts,” by Marcia Carlson, Alicia VanOrman, and Kimberly Turner (WP-14-05-FF, June 2014, .pdf format, 32p.).

Abstract:

Fathers’ roles in family life have changed dramatically over the past fifty years. In addition to ongoing ‘breadwinning’ responsibilities, many fathers are now involved in direct caregiving and engagement with children. Yet, there is considerable variation in what fathers do, especially depending on whether they live with or away from their child. In this paper, we use data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (N=3,874) to describe the prevalence of fathers’ economic capacities (money) and direct involvement with children (time) for resident versus nonresident fathers, and to evaluate how these are associated over child ages 1 to 9, net of confounding factors. We find suggestive evidence that money and time investments operate differently across residential contexts: Resident fathers experience a trade-off between market work and time involved with children. In contrast, nonresident fathers’ greater economic capacities are associated with greater time involvement, underscoring the challenges for nonresident fathers.
