1960 Census of Population: Subject Reports: Marital Status

Report Number PC(2)-4E

Education, Race, Parentage, Occupation, Earnings, Etc., of Individuals and of Husband and Wife in Married Couples

The final reports of the 1960 Population Census are arranged in three volumes and a joint Population-Housing series of census tract reports. Volume II (Series PC(2) reports) are Subject Reports. Each report concentrates on a particular subject. Detailed information and cross-relationships are generally provided on a national and regional level. In a few reports, data for States or standard metropolitan statistical areas are also shown.

This report, designated as PC(2)-4E, presents detailed statistics on the marital status of persons 14 years old and over and data for married couples cross-classified by selected characteristics of husband and wife. All of the statistics are based on a 5-percent sample.

The report contains data on the following subjects: color or race, nativity and parentage, years of school completed, whether married more than once, years since first marriage, occupation, and income in 1959. This report shows statistics for the United States, urbanized areas combined, and the South. In addition, some of the tables show figures for regions and for the urban, rural-nonfarm, and rural-farm parts of the United States.

The PDF to the right contains the Title Page, Preface, Acknowledgments, Final Reports (list), Contents, Introduction and Tables 1 – 4 (page 91).

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
