This article aims to identify which sociodemographic profile of single-parenting mothers is associated with family reconstitution. Are single-parenting women different from women in a reconstituted nucleus? After examining the coherency of statistical sources describing the sociodemographic profile of mothers in single-parent and reconstituted nuclei, the article analyses the sociodemographic variables of former single-parenting women now associated with family reconstitution using multivariate logistic regression analysis. The Population Census of 2001 is used along with Labour Force Survey from 1999 to 2010. The results show a high degree of consistency in the statistical sources and indicate that individual status variables (occupation and educational level of women) are not those that best explain the different propensities towards family reconstitution among single-parenting mothers.
