America By the Numbers

Published by patrick honner on

NYT us by the numbersThis is a nice infographic from the NYT highlighting some of the data from the 2010 U.S. Census:

Some of the highlights

  • We’re eating less meat and fewer vegetables per person per year, down 5.4 lbs and 30 lbs, respectively, since 2000.  One wonders where we are making up the difference?
  • The marriage rate is the lowest since 1970, and the divorce rate is comparable to that year’s, as well.

The accompanying article from the Times can be found here, and the U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistical Abstract of the United States, where this summary information is drawn from, can be found here.
