The Fertility and Family Statistics Branch has produced annual tables on America's Families and Living Arrangements since 1999. For decades before that, similar tables were produced under the titles: Household and Family Characteristics, and Marital Status and Living Arrangements. Since their inception, these tables have been modified to meet the needs of data users. The number of tables for the 2015 America's Families and Living Arrangements package was reduced from 32 detailed tables (72 with iterations) to 26 tables. Most of the changes involved deleting entire tables or removing iterations. For the sake of consistency over time, table title numbers were retained, so table numbering may no longer be consecutive—that is, Table A3 may appear directly following Table A1, since Table A2 has been deleted. However, the contents of A1 and A3 remain the same as in prior years.
