52% of fathers claim they are primarily responsible for grocery purchasing decisions, with just 10% saying the responsibility belongs fully to someone else, according to [pdf] results from a Cone Communications survey released in June 2012.

Even so, fathers who claim primary responsibility for household grocery shopping appear to need a healthy amount of input from others. 72% say they receive either moderate (38%) or a lot (34%) of input. Just 47% of mothers who say they are primarily responsible for grocery shopping report the same level of outside input. Read the rest at MarketingCharts.
