The Census Bureau estimated that 32 million Americans live by themselves. More than half of them are women, but men have been closing the gap.
And America is not alone. The findings mirror a global trend. In Sweden, 47 percent of households are inhabited by one person. The share is around 32 percent in Japan. In Canada, it’s around 28 percent.
Globally, the number of one person households has risen by 30 percent over the last 10 years, and according to a 2012 report from Euromonitor International, the trend is having a worldwide impact on consumer spending patterns.
