Briefly analyzes long-term demographic, social, and economic trends for households, families, and children. The demographic and social data include race, Hispanic origin, age, marital status, and fertility, but focus on household and family composition–single-parent families, for example.

The report also links social and economic characteristics, for instance, educational attainment and income. In addition, it discusses labor-force participation by sex, income and poverty, and other economic data, relating them to the presence of children.

A final section of the report features the social and economic circumstances of the children and their families, including for 1989 and 1990 such special topics as child support payments and health insurance coverage for children.

Charts and graphs clarify historical perspectives, typically for 30 years.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
