Employment Characteristics of Families, 2011
Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics
From the summary:
In 2011, 11.5 percent of families included an unemployed person,
falling from a peak of 12.4 percent in 2010, the U.S. Bureau of
Labor Statistics reported today. Of the nation's 78.4 million
families, 79.8 percent had at least one employed member in 2011.
These data on employment, unemployment, and family relationships
are collected as part of the Current Population Survey (CPS), a
monthly sample survey of approximately 60,000 households. Families
are classified either as married-couple families or as families
maintained by women or men without spouses present.
