Percentage of households cohabiting by state
Saturday, the Los Angeles Times published an article that analyzed Census data showing that interracial couples in the U.S. who are cohabiting more than doubled in 2010, compared to 2000.
But does this same trend hold true for all households in the U.S., regardless of race?
According to U.S. Census data, “There was a 41 percent increase in unmarried partner households between 2000 and 2010. Opposite-sex unmarried partner households grew from 4.9 million in 2000 to 6.8 million in 2010. Same-sex unmarried partner households grew from 358,000 to 646,000 from 2000 to 2010, or from 0.3 percent of all households to 0.6 percent of all households.”
Here is a list of all 50 states showing the percent of households in each state who are cohabiting. Maine is the state with the highest percent — 8.4. Utah is the state with the lowest — 3.9 percent.
