  5. Understanding the lives of separating and separated parents in the UK: what evidence do we need?

    Description:

    This report collects the findings of social science methodologists and experts on separating and separated families in the UK. The study explains how far the current data infrastructure is fit for increasing our understanding how separated parents. The study found that the current infrastructure falls some way short, and that without improvement, policy makers, researchers and practitioners will continue to be hindered by the limited evidence base. The report proposes a number of ways in which the data infrastructure could be bolstered through additional survey data collection from separating and separated families.
