Attendance in fatherhood programs has been measured in multiple ways, including number of classes or sessions attended, number of overall hours of workshop attendance, number of hours of participation in specific content areas, number of modules completed, number of service activities in which fathers participate, and completion of the program or rates of graduation.
This research brief addresses the problem of low attendance in programs for low-income fathers. We review approaches to measuring attendance, rates of attendance reported by programs, influences on attendance, the effects of attendance on fathers’ outcomes, and future directions for improving attendance and studying it. The full brief can be downloaded below.
