The percentage of Dutch 15 year olds not living with both their parents increased from 20 percent to 30 percent between 1997 and 2017. Children of unmarried parents are more likely to see their parents separate than kids of married parents, Statistics Netherlands said in its report New Families, released on Monday.

The reason for the vast majority of 15 year olds not living with both parents, is divorce or separation. Less than 5 percent of these teenagers don't live with both parents due to the death of one or both parents.
