U.S. Household Trends Since 1970…to the Year 2010

Single adults and single parents continue to be the fastest-growing household types in America. For example, since 1980, single fathers have increased 99 percent and single mothers, 42 percent. And people living alone have increased 36 percent. During that same time period, married-couple households increased by only 9 percent.
