Median Age at First Marriage for Same-Sex and Different-Sex Couples, 2019

The National Center for Family & Marriage Research (NCFMR) at the Bowling Green State University just released this family profile. Its findings are based on data from the 2019 American Community Survey (ACS), 1-year estimates. It is interesting to see the median age difference between same-sex and different-sex couples after the legalization of same-sex marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015. The U.S. Census Bureau has changed their data collection since then to directly query respondents about same-sex and different-sex partnerships. See other family profiles based on ACS data.

Purdue Opinion Panel polls, 1949-1974

In early 1940s Hermann Henry Remmers, a Professor of Education and Psychology at Purdue University designed a poll to understand the attitudes of teenagers. It was the first time nearly all Americans teenagers attended high school. Dr. Remmers utilized sampling techniques to gather information from this subset of the population through their schools. Purdue Opinion polls began with respondents in Indiana, then expanded to five Midwestern states, and eventually covered the whole nation in 1945. Topics cover parents, education, television, civil liberties, communism, ethics, science, selective service, drugs, poverty, and the Middle East. Roper Center holds datasets from sixty Purdue Opinion Panel polls from 1949 to 1974.
