Abstract

Tabulations are presented for "remarried couple households" in the June 1980 CPS, defined as married couple households in which one or both of the spouses has been divorced. Results show that, in one out of five households maintained by a married couple in June 1980, one or both of the spouses had been divorced. One-sixth of all children under 18 in the U.S. lived in these households. These remarried couple households are classified further by the existence and current living arrangements of children from previous marriages. In about 2.3 million of these households, stepparents and stepchildren were present.
