The percentage of children living in a two-parent household has reached its highest point in the U-S in nearly 30 years.

The Christian Post reports, the milestone was revealed in an analysis of last year’s U-S census data, undertaken by the Institute for Family Studies.

The conservative think tank released a report last month ] titled “Growing Up With Mom and Dad: New Data Confirms The Tide Is Turning.”

According to the analysis, 70 percent of people under 18 in the U-S live in a home with TWO parents.

A quarter live with one parent while 4 percent live with neither parent.

The findings on children living in two-parent homes is a slight increase on the data taken from 10 and 20 years ago.

However, it remains slightly below the 72 per cent of under-18 year-olds living with both parents in 1990 and well below the 87 per cent in 1960.
