Research Clusters

Thematic Analysis

Each of FIRA's clusters on socially defined sub-populations of fathers also collected data on a set of core questions designed to gather father involvement information pertaining to fathers in all cluster on topics such as father/child relationships, children's influence on fathers, factors that influence fathers' levels of involvement and negotiating parenthood with partners.

The thematic working group analyzed this data to create an overview of father involvement issues which cut across clusters.
