Old maids and bachelors

U.S. Census Bureau data not only plays a role in congressional redistricting and whatnot, but it also provides the average citizen with a handy way to measure oneself against the masses.

Last week, the chronicling agency of American habits released its annual roundup of America's living arrangements. Here's a selection, but if you go to you can get more information, including marital status by age, sex, personal earnings, race and Hispanic origin.

Percentage of people never married:

Ages 20-24: 81.1

25-29: 50.3

30-34: 28.7

35-39: 19.9

• Among males:

Ages 20-24: 86.7

25-29: 57.4

30-34: 33.4

35-39: 23.3

• Among females:

Ages 20-24: 75.3

25-29: 43.1

30-34: 24.0

35-39: 16.7
