The paper provides a descriptive analysis of non-resident fathers in the UK in relation to living standards and social relationships. Drawing on data from the large-scale, nationally representative UK Poverty and Social Exclusion 2012 study the paper highlights that non-resident fathers have higher levels of poverty and deprivation, and lower levels of social support than do fathers with resident-only children. The paper therefore addresses the situation of a relatively ignored subpopulation and contributes to ongoing discussions about the limitations of the household as the unit of analysis for measuring living standards by noting the potential importance of extrahousehold financial responsibilities.
