Did you know that there is an organisation called www.unmarriedamerica.org  that is an information service for America’s 101 million unmarried adults — who head up a majority of the nation’s  households. Their services focus on your interests as employees, consumers, taxpayers, and voters, regardless of your household size or family structure.  This site says “you will not find a more comprehensive or reliable source of  information about this special population anywhere on the Internet.”  Unmarried America is a function of Spectrum Institute, a nonprofit corporation with federal tax exempt status.

The term “Unmarried and Single Americans Week,” is an acknowledgment that many unmarried Americans do not identify with the word “single” because they are parents, have partners or are widowed. The US Census Bureau statistics reveal, unmarried people include those who were never married, widowed, or divorced, unless otherwise noted.  

 And just in case you were wondering here are a  few Single Life Statistics – courtesy of the US Census Bureau:

 

Single Life

95.9 million

Number of unmarried Americans 18 and older in 2008. This group comprised 43 percent of all U.S. residents 18 and older.

53%

Percentage of unmarried Americans 18 and older who were women.

61%

Percentage of unmarried Americans 18 and older who had never been married. Another 24 percent were divorced, and 15 percent were widowed.

15.8 million

Number of unmarried Americans 65 and older. These older Americans comprised 16 percent of all unmarried and single people 18 and older.

87

Number of unmarried men 18 and older for every 100 unmarried women in the United States.

 

National Unmarried and Singles Americans Week - movie Single released

To help you celebrate this week in style, there is a film just released, coincidentally called  “Single”. It’s produced and directed by Richard Atkinson and Jane Scandurra and distributed by Osiris Entertainment. It  was released this week and is available through major online retailers including BarnesandNoble.com, Amazon.com, and Netflix as well as major retail outlets nationwide.

100 million adults in the USA are single and for the first time ever the majority of US households are headed by an unmarried person. The film takes an in-depth look into the influences behind this generational shift. The story unfolds as thought provoking and often humorous experts, singer/songwriters, comedians and “real people” describe how life today has become more complex, intense and demanding, and that finding and maintaining a lasting relationship has never been more challenging:

So let’s go out, celebrate single life and help recognize singles and our contribution to society – like accounting for $1.6 trillion in U.S. consumer spending.
