Salary.com's Annual Dad's Salary Survey

How Much is Dad Worth?

While Mother's Day gets most of the attention, we at Salary.com certainly haven't forgotten the other half of the parenting equation -- dads.

Traditionally most of the childcare and household duties has fallen to moms, but as this year's crop of fathers shows, dads are stepping up their level of involvement at home and making it a point to spend more time with family. We surveyed more than 1,800 dads to find out what their top 10 most time-consuming jobs are and how much time per week they spend on each. Then we applied our extensive salary data to each job, factored in the number of hours worked including overtime, crunched all the numbers and POOF – we get an estimate of what fathers would make if they were paid an annual salary for their parenting and household tasks.

So how much are dads really worth? It might be more than you think.

Leading up to Father's Day on June 17, Salary.com will be producing slideshows, articles and personal testimonials from dads on a variety of topics. We're also partnering with The Good Men Project -- an online magazine dedicated to men's roles in modern society -- whose writers will take up topics relevant to dads such as paternity leave, work/life flexibility, and a wide-ranging Salary.com user survey discussing the ever-evolving roles of modern day dads.
