I am very interested in how American Households and families are changing so I created this visualization that shows how households are organized has changed over the last 70 years. I used data from the U.S. Census Bureau and Tableau to create this visualization. To better understand the categories, I have included definitions of these terms below. If you want to find out more about CPS definitions you can find them here.
Married Family Household: A household where a married couple owns or rents the home.
Non-Married Family Household: A household where the person who owns or rents the house is related to someone in the home, but the person is either unmarried or their spouse doesn’t live there.
Non-Family Household: A household where the person who owns or rents the household is not related to anyone else in the household. People who live alone are included in this type of household.
