  •  
    Household TV Time has increased by 70%.

    In the 60s, almost 3 out of 4 adults were married. Now that number is 1 in 2.

    The number of 18-34 year old adults who still live with their parents has almost doubled since the 60's.
  •  
    Back then, half of men smoked cigarettes - now that number is just 1 in 4.
