Social and Economic Characteristics of Americans During Midlife

Report Number P23-111

This report presents data on "middle-aged" persons, defined here as aged 45 to 64. The study combines data from various reports previously published by the Census Bureau or the National Center for Health Statistics. Census Bureau data come mainly from the 1979 Current Population Survey.

This volume features such social characteristics as family and marital status, fertility, mobility, educational attainment, voting, health, and crime victimization. Economic data include income, earnings, and poverty status along with occupation, industry, and labor force participation.

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.
