Married Couples in Less Than Half of US Households

Married Couples in Less Than Half of US Households, by Nigel Duara, AP (ABC News, 28 May 2011)

Excerpt:
Data released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau shows married couples have found themselves in a new position: They're no longer the majority. It's a trend that's been creeping along for decades, but in the 2010 Census, married couples represent 48 percent of all households. That's down from 52 percent in the last Census and, for the first time in U.S. history, puts households led by married couples as a plurality.
