More Stats:

The Buckeye Singles Council started “National Singles Week” in Ohio in the 1980s to celebrate single life and recognize singles and their contributions to society. The week is now widely observed during the third full week of September (Sept. 20-26 in 2015) as “Unmarried and Single Americans Week,” an acknowledgment that many unmarried Americans do not identify with the word “single” because they are parents, have partners or are widowed.

In 1990 the U.S. Census Bureau added the unmarried partner option to the decennial census, thus allowing the Census to collect same-sex data. These are the answers to other common questions about same-sex data collection.

From the U.S. Census Bureau, 2013 American Community Survey 1-year data file.
