EXCERPTS

One in five lone mothers has a bachelor's degree or higher, up from 2006

Mothers in lone-parent families, many of whom may face financial and other barriers to participation in the education system and the labour market, are increasingly equipped with skills at the bachelor's level or above. In 2016, 20.4% of lone mothers aged 25 to 64 had a bachelor's degree or higher, up from 14.7% in 2006. Nevertheless, their educational attainment was still lower than that of other women. For example, 39.0% of mothers aged 25 to 64 who are married or living common law had a bachelor's degree or higher in 2016, up from 26.9% in 2006.
