Are Families Falling Apart? Census Shows Increase In Single Parents, Divorced People
Since the housing crisis of the late 2000s, home values have dipped across the state, from an estimated median of more than $300,000 during the period of 2007-2009 to about $279,000 in 2010-2012.

Recently released sample data taken by the U.S. Census Bureau over the same 3-year periods also show that the number of homes in Connecticut worth more than $1 million dropped by more than 17 percent; homes between $500,000 and $1 million, down 15 percent; and homes between $300,000 and $500,000, down nearly 10 percent.

During the same period, the average number of occupants per room has increased. There are now an estimated 7,707 housing units with more than 1.51 occupants per room — an increase of about 21 percent.
