What kind of relationships are in your household? The old-fashioned nuclear family with Mom, Dad, and a couple of children is still pretty common, but growing numbers of households involve more complex ties between parents and children, other relatives, unmarried partners, and non-relatives.
Nuclear is still the most common, but there are millions of households in the United States with a different family structure. Based on data from the 5-year American Community Survey from 2010-2014, I counted 10,276 different types of households.
Nathan Yau charted the 50 most common household makeups in a chart, of which this is just a small corner. It’s strange to think that the most common household now contains a single person, but looking through the chart, I have lived, at one time or another, in eight of the ten configurations across the top of the chart.
