Single-Person Households, 2000-2010


The geographic distribution of single-person households is primarily in urban areas. The county seat of almost every county is noticeable in the map—the areas with a larger concentration of solo households show up. This particular map shows city-level as well as county-level rates. The county rates include the cities within those counties. Memphis appears to have a lower concentration of single-person households than the other major cities, Nashville, Chattanooga, and Knoxville. It is interesting to note that of the seven cities/towns in the top class (shown in red), only Berry Hill is in middle Tennessee. All the others (Cumberland Gap, Copperhill, Wartburg, Jamestown, Pleasant Hill, and Ducktown) are in east Tennessee.

The geographic distribution of single-person households is primarily in urban areas, and six of the seven cities/towns with the highest concentration are in east Tennessee.
