Family Structure Shifts in New York City
"The city was home to 29 percent more households consisting of unmarried partners and 10 percent fewer single mothers in 2010 than in 2000.
While the total number of households with children declined and the number that included someone 65 or older increased, the age gap widened between New York City and residents of the rest of the state, who, taken together, are growing older at a faster rate. "
But there are some children in the city. Manhattan saw a rise in the number of children under five and the young adult age range of 15-34.
