U.S. adults believe the role of fatherhood has shifted over the last few decades, with many noting the job has become more difficult, according to a recent poll.

While many are split as to whether fathers are doing a better or worse job today, a YouGov poll found that 63% of adults believe fathers play as great or greater a role in raising their children than their fathers did. Only 22% said they believe fathers now play less of a role in raising their children.

When asked if the job of being a father today is more difficult than in previous generations, 45% of U.S. adults and 52% of fathers agreed it is more challenging in the present.

Results also indicate that fathers do not feel valued by society. Nearly half of adults (46%), including 55% of fathers, say that society does not reward them for their work and role. Similarly, a poll in April found that 57% of adults do not believe mothers are rewarded for their work in society.
