Population estimates by marital status and living arrangements, England and Wales: 2002 to 2016

More people are single, never married or civil partnered than ever before.
The percentage of people aged 16 and over who are single, never married or civil partnered has increased over time from 29.6% in 2002 to 34.6% in 2016. These people are increasingly cohabiting.

marriages 13 july

In 2002 people who were 'cohabiting – never married or civil partnered' represented 6.8% of the population, this had increased to 9.8% by 2016. This may be explained by an increasing trend to cohabit instead of marry, or to cohabit before marriage, particularly at younger ages. Cohabiting couple families are the fastest growing family type in the UK (2004 to 2016). Find out more in our latest release.
