Abstract

In the United States, most married couples are homogamous, meaning they share similar characteristics such as educational level or race/ethnicity. This profile is an update of previous family profiles on homogamy in the U.S.: FP-18-18, FP-15-16, FP-15-15, and FP-15-14. It investigates educational, racial/ethnic, age, and nativity homogamy among newlyweds (married less than one year) versus those married at least one year, using the 2019 American Community Survey.
