Families 2000 Update
While we commonly think of families as having children, the Census defines families as having at least 2 people who are related by birth, marriage, or adoption. This means that since married couples without children meet this definition for Census data, not all family households have children.
Nationally, only 46% of married couples have children under the age of 18. In addition, people who live alone, with roommates, or are unmarried partners are called “nonfamily households.” To find data from the Census Bureau on nonfamily households, look under household types.
