Stay-at-home-dads are on the rise in Australia.
The figures show that the number of fathers who choose stay stay home to look after their children has hit a record high.
A government analysis of census data reveals there were around 80,000 stay-at-home dads in Australia in 2016 – up by about 11,500 – in seven years.
Researchers from the Australian Institute of Family Studies found households with stay-at-home dads tend to have fewer kids at home and earn less than families with stay-at-home mothers.
The dads are older and more likely than other fathers to have a disability or be enrolled in education.
