We may not be smelling like roses because we’re still not perfect as a group, but most modern dads apparently change diapers–in fact 54-percent of us do that–according to a new survey conducted by the TODAY show.

Those dads who say they change diapers report that only 37% of their dads did.

“Dads are more engaged with their kids than ever before,” Dana Glazer, a New Jersey father of three and filmmaker who created the documentary “The Evolution of Dad” told TODAY.

As long as we’re dispelling stereotypes: Just 48-percent told NBC that providing income was their primary role.

-30% say they do most of the grocery shopping

-26% say they prepare the meals

Probably the best takeaway from the NBC survey: Roughly 75-percent of dads say that being dad is their most important job!

TODAY surveyed 2,000 moms and dads for this survey.
