All;Living with One Parent;Living with Two Parents


Children are all persons under the age of 18 years, living in families, and related as children by birth, marriage, or adoption to the householder. For children living with one parent, the resident parent is not in the work force, for children living with two parents, both parents are not in the work force. Values include total children, total children per family type, and total children per family type with non-working parents. Rates per family type and per parental employment status are calculated as a percentage of total children within a given geography. These data originate from the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year estimates, table B23008. The ACS collects these data from a sample of households on a rolling monthly basis. ACS aggregates samples into one-, three-, or five-year periods.
