Married Couples Are No Longer a Majority

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Married couples no longer comprise a majority of American households, according to the recent census:

Married couples represented just 48 percent of American households in 2010, according to data being made public Thursday and analyzed by the Brookings Institution. This was slightly less than in 2000, but far below the 78 percent of households occupied by married couples in 1950.
