Based on reliable sources of statistical information and its quantitative analysis, the author address the following questions: what is the real prevalence of the phenomenon of single motherhood in Russia, taking into account different approaches to its definition, what is the probability of transition for women with children from one partnership status to another, and in which direction has changed the average duration of parenting children in single-mother families (since birth and up to age of 18). The paper uses data from the population censuses, vital statistics of births over a long period of time, as well as data from two waves of a large sample survey "Parents and children, men and women in family and society," performed in the framework of the UNECE "Generations and Gender" international comparative research programme of surveys (GGS).
