1970 Census of Population, Supplementary Report: Age at First Marriage and Children Ever Born, for the United States: 1970

Report Number PC(S1)-34

The data in this report present highlights regarding age at first marriage for men and women 30 to 49 years old and regarding number of children ever born. The marriage data are shown for persons 30 to 49 years old because that is the youngest age group with relatively complete first marriage experience; only one-tenth of those who marry do so after they reach 30 years of age and only 1 percent after they reach 50. Statistics are tabulated for selected social and economic characteristics.

The detailed tables presented here are preprints of tables 211, 212, and 213 from the final report PC(1)01, Detailed Characteristics, United States Summary, which contains additional summary information on the detailed characteristics of the population, as well as more detailed technical explanations.
