EMPLOYMENT CHARACTERISTICS OF FAMILIES -- 2012 [26 April 2013]
[full-text, 12 pages]
In 2012, 10.5 percent of families included an unemployed person, down 1.0 percentage point
from 2011, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Of the nation's 80.1 million
families, 80.0 percent had at least one employed member in 2012.
These data on employment, unemployment, and family relationships are collected as part of
the Current Population Survey (CPS), a monthly sample survey of approximately 60,000
households. Data in this release are annual averages. Families are classified either as
married-couple families or as families maintained by women or men without spouses present.
Unless otherwise noted, families include those without children as well as those with
children under age 18. For further information, see the Technical Note.
