It’s hard to claim that fathers aren’t pretty special people. It is hard to put a price on the memories you have with your father, or the relationship you have. However, there is a price tag on the cost of absent fathers to the sum of almost one-hundred billion dollars.
It as been released that the federal government spends $99.8 billion dollars every year on programs – such as child support enforcement and anti-poverty efforts – to support father-absent homes. This is a conservative estimate; it does not include federal benefit programs for communities, indirect costs related to poor outcomes of children from father-absent homes, and long-term costs in reduced tax income from low-earning single-parent families.
