August 2018

Divorces declined by 19.8% — divorces between couples who have children generally outnumber those of couples with no children. The largest single proportion (39.4%) of households are nuclear — that is, with one or both parents and their children. Almost two thirds of all children live in extended households (those in which a couple and their children live with relatives).

Some 40.8% of all children live with their mother only, 34.9% with both parents, 21.3% with neither parent and just 3% with their father only.
