Family Study

I thought that this was an interesting study. It was conducted by Georgia State University economist Ben Scafidi and sponsored by the Institute for American Values, the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy, the Georgia Family Council, and the Families Northwest. It found that family fragmentation costs the nation $112 billion a year. The Sutherland Institute says that divorce and unwed childbearing is costing Utah taxpayers $276 million a year.
