A new report from the U.S. Census Bureau provides a snapshot of the wellbeing of older adults who are childless.
The report shows how declines in marriage and fertility and increased cohabitation in the general population are starting to be reflected in the lives of aging adults.
The report, Childless Older Americans: 2018, found that 15.2 million (16.5 percent) of 92.2 million adults aged 55 and older are childless. Moreover, the new data found that those aged 55 to 64 were more likely to be childless.
The report explores childless adults’ personal net worth, educational attainment, and relationship and household information.
More information on the report can be found here.
