Unmarried and Single Americans Week: September 15-21, 2019

Release Number CB19-SFS.110
Component ID: #ti2051779226

From Singular Magazine: “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 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 this edition of Stats for Stories, unmarried people include those who were never married, widowed or divorced, unless otherwise noted.
