Living Alone in America

Hosted by

A new report from the US Census Bureau says the number of Americans living alone now stands at 27 percent of the population. That’s a dramatic increase from the 70’s, when the figure was only 17 percent. Living alone used to have a negative connotation, but that image is rapidly eroding.
