Default Statistics - Shared Parenting

Hi All,

Needed a place to stick this to remind myself of it... I often reference this document but, lost the link a while back. Recently came across it.

Sharing Custody - When Parents Separate: Further Findings from the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (2004-FCY-6E)

Specifically, this very interesting (and not very often cited) reference:

Quote:
From shared to sole custody—a multivariate analysis

The importance of the duration since separation comes out clearly in the multivariate analysis presented in Table 3.3, which evaluates the impact of various factors on the likelihood that children moved into sole mother or sole father custody by 1998-99 rather than remaining in shared custody. This analysis shows:

- The longer the time since separation, the more likely the move into sole mother or sole father custody becomes.

- Shared living arrangements put in place for children whose parents separate when they are of secondary-school age are significantly less durable than those made for primary-school aged children. This result is at first surprising. One might assume that the greater independence of older children would facilitate the movement between parents' households, making them more likely to remain in shared custody. This does not appear to be the case. Having spent a larger part of childhood with both parents in a single residence, are they less willing to put up with the inconvenience of two homes? Does their greater autonomy in fact facilitate frequent contact with both parents, whether or not they actually live with them?

- Shared custody is also more likely to develop into sole father custody when children are very young at separation. This result was also unexpected, given the greater propensity towards mother custody among young children. Could it be that, at times, shared living arrangements are chosen for young children by couples in which the father took the main responsibility for the children because the mother found it hard to cope, and is unable to cope alone after separation? More detailed, qualitative data are necessary to understand this process, as they are to understand the circumstances surrounding father custody more generally.

- Girls are significantly less likely than boys to move from shared custody to father custody.

- Certain types of shared custody arrangements also influence the move to father custody: children who alternated between parents every two weeks, or who were in some other type of shared arrangements, are more likely to be with their father later on.

- Children living in Quebec in 1998-99 were significantly less likely to move from shared living arrangements to living exclusively with either their mother or father. Not only is shared custody more common in Quebec than elsewhere in Canada (see Table 3.2), it is also more durable.[/list]
Food for thought...

Good Luck!
Tayken

Interesting indeed - though bear in mind the data here are almost 20 years old. Perhaps with Statistics Canada getting proper funding again and the return of the long-form census, we'll be able to get some up-to-date research on the dynamics of custody and residence after divorce.

It would be interesting to see if the prediction of the trends actually came true since authoring.

My concern is that there is a tax benefit (for the government) to promote "sole custody" and "majority access" situations. Whereby the government actually makes more income from these situations. Not that it is a "dark government" conspiracy or anything... :P
