Demographic changes, such as increases in cohabitation, divorce, and single parenthood as well as the delay in marriage entry and decrease in remarriage, continue to shape American families and households (Cherlin, 2010).The effects of these changes over time, however, differ across race/ethnicity and educational levels (Kennedy & Bumpass, 2008; Manning, 2013; Teachman, et al. 2000). This profile presents changes in the proportion of U.S. single, cohabiting couple, and married couple households across race/ethnicity between 1995 and 2012. (Author abstract)
