Single Moms vs Single Dads

I need to download basic demographics to compare single moms with single dads - and I assume this is using the momloc and poploc rules, but I’m not exactly sure how they link together. I’ve read the descriptions and I’m just not getting it. Help!

Depending on your research, you might find it easiest to use MARST, SEX, and NCHILD. You could filter on these variables to locate either men or women who are unmarried yet have their own children (including step-children and adopted children) living in the household.
