THE MARITAL STATUS AND LIVING ARRANGEMENTS OF AMERICANS

Statistical tables that show information on the marital status of the
nation's population and their living arrangements were released today by the
Commerce Department's Census Bureau. The data are from the March 1995 Current
Population Survey.

The 1995 tabulations provide information such as:

- Nearly 3 out of 10 (27 percent) children under 18 lived
with only one parent.

- Approximately 4 million grandchildren lived in the home
of their grandparents.

- There were 3.7 million unmarried-couple households.

- One-third of people aged 25 to 34 had never been
married.

- 32 percent of persons 65 and over lived alone.

Copies of the tables can be found on the Internet at
http://www.census.gov/prod/www/titles.html#popspec. Paper copies of the
tables, along with related historical tables entitled, "Marital Status and
Living Arrangements: March 1995" (PPL-52), can be obtained from the Census
Bureau's Public Information Office on 301-457-3030.
