Survey Reveals Paternity Questions Loom for More Than One in 10 Americans
Date:12/27/2011

SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- While many Americans are resolving to address financial issues or lose weight in 2012, a new survey shows that some adults are looking to find answers to an important question – who is the child's father?  

The survey, which was commissioned by Identigene, the largest direct-to-consumer DNA paternity testing laboratory and makers of the Identigene DNA Paternity Test, the only paternity test available at the drug store, reveals that more than one in 10 (11 percent) adults ages 18 years and older said they have personally been in a situation where a paternity test was appropriate; and nearly one in five (18 percent) said that they or a close friend or family member have questioned paternity. 

The results of the survey help to uncover the prevalence of paternity questions in the U.S., as well as adults' intentions to identify biological fathers in the new year. Fifty-one percent of adults with paternity questions either plan to address their question in 2012 or would like to but are not sure where to start. Men with paternity questions are twice as likely (51 percent) than women (25 percent) to address paternity in 2012.

New Year Prompts Action

The research helps to confirm a trend Identigene has noticed since it launched the Identigene DNA Paternity Test in retail pharmacies in 2007. Each year the company experiences a spike in first quarter sales, something it attributes, in part, to New Year's resolutions. 

"The new year definitely seems to trigger many adults with paternity questions to take steps to address their question," said Steven Smith, executive director for Identigene. "We want adults with paternity issues to know they are not alone and there are many others looking for answers, too. But most importantly, it's vital for them to know that addressing a paternity question is not only a responsible step
