Oh, oh, I started a trend – posting to the blog something related to singles for every day of singles week – and I am running out of time because I have other things going on.
Well, here are a few more stats from the 2000 Census:
- A little more than a quarter of all families in the U.S. involve no married couple.
- 7% of families are headed by a male householder, 49% of those include own
children under 18
- 19% of families are headed by a female householder, 59% of those include
own children under 18
That’s all for today… Sorry, I am tired… 😉
These stats are now updated with the 2007 American Community Survey.
Also see the Alternatives to Marriage Project press release – lots more facts.
