  1. Hi Glenn, Is there any way you can go a little further and give a statistic on single-parent families with a child with a disability. This would be of great benefit to charities like myself who are raising funds to help children with disabilities. You can correct me if I am wrong, but I think the statistic is 70% of parents who have a child with disability end in divorce or separation.

    As a single mum just looking to make sense of the Census, I really appreciate your insight. I’m 70 and a son in his 40s lives with me. So now I know there are about 30,000 other such households, how can I use this data?
