The Future of Families in America
The number of families in America has been on the decline for 20 years. In the last decade alone, the number of households where parents live with children under the age of 18 has declined by more than three million (though you wouldn’t know it from the strength of the custom new construction market).
The big question: will the Covid-19 pandemic have any effect on this trend?
In our latest study, we’ve set out to answer that, and along the way, to explore recently released data from the US Census Bureau, to determine which states and cities in America are most densely populated with families.
We began our analysis by assessing where families are largest – and houses fullest – by both state and across the 40 most populous cities. The map below depicts states with the most people per household, on average, and the table shows the same data for large cities.
