A study from DC’s Office of Revenue Analysis looked at the connections between marital status and neighborhood in the District, and it’s as you may have suspected: The singletons are infiltrating every neighborhood.
Using 2013 tax data, DC fiscal analyst Ginger Moored found a few interesting correlations between marital status and neighborhood. Childless singles were the most common “family type” in almost every DC neighborhood, with the exception of three (broadly-defined) neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River. The singleton demographic was especially dominant close to downtown, in neighborhoods like Logan and Dupont, Moored notes. East of the river, singles with dependents were the most common family type.
Meanwhile, the easiest places to find married people, both with and without kids, was in the city’s upper northwest section. That family type was, unsurprisingly, most common in neighborhoods like American University Park, Spring Valley and Friendship Heights.
