Singles Surpass Families

The Census Bureau reports that for the first time more single households exist than couples with children households.

The US Census Bureau has concluded that, for the first time, the number of households consisting of 1 single adult exceeds the number of "married with children" households. Single households grew 21% from 1990 to 2000 to become the most common type of household in the U.S. This has affected housing patterns and provided a market for more single-serve items.
