The Nation

The number of American households grew at a faster rate than the U.S. population between 1980 and 1984, the Census Bureau said. While the population grew 4.2% between 1980 and 1984, the number of households jumped 7%, a new bureau study said. Changes in the nation’s age structure, primarily young people leaving their parents and setting up their own homes, were cited for the results. The study said that in the 1980 to 1984 period, the population 18 years and over increased by 6.6%.
