Families in America presents a wide selection of information from the American Community Survey that helps us describe American living arrangements, relationships, marriages, births, children, and incomes. Each section includes a large selection of information for the United States, the 50 states, and the District of Columbia. This is followed by a more limited selection of data for 381 metropolitan areas, 980 counties with populations of 50,000 or more, and 795 cities with populations of 50,000 or more.

Families in America includes details about both family and nonfamily households and includes topics such as multi-generational households, same-sex partner households, grandchildren living with grandparents, and nonrelatives in family households. In addition, information related to age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, income, poverty, and health insurance for various household types is included.

Preface

Most Americans live in families, defined by the Census Bureau as persons related by birth, marriage, or adoption. Family households can include persons who are not family members, and nonfamily households often include persons with close personal relationships. This book includes a selection of data from the American Community Survey that helps us describe American living arrangements, relationships, marriages, births, children, and incomes. Part A includes information on types of households. Part B is about relationships, defining the variety of people who can make up a household. Part C includes details on marital status, marital history, and recent births. Part D summarizes the living arrangements of children and the employment patterns of their parents. Part E includes information about income for the various types of households. Each section includes a large selection of information for the United States, the 50 states, and the District of Columbia. This is followed by a more limited selection of data for 381 metropolitan areas, 980 counties with populations of 50,000 or more, and 795 cities with populations of 50,000 or more.

Although most Americans have always lived in family households, the proportions have changed dramatically over the past half-century. In 1950, nearly 90 percent of households were family households and the proportion remained over 80 percent in 1960 and 1970. The very high birth rates of the baby boom in the 1950s and 1960s were followed by historically low birth rates in the 1970s. The proportion of family households fell to 73.2 percent in 1980 and by 2010 it had dropped to 66.4 percent. As the baby boom population formed new households, the proportion of one-person households increased from 9.3 percent in 1950 to 22.7 percent in 1980. The millennial generation continued this trend and one-person households rose to 26.7 percent in 2010. Family households with children were more than half of families in 1950 through 1980, but dropped to 44.8 percent of families by 2010, as birth rates remained low and hit even lower levels than in the 1970s.
