The number of one-person households in England is projected to increase by 26% between 2016 and 2041, driven by increases in the number of people aged 65 years and over living on their own.

The number of people aged 90 years and over living on their own is projected to more than double, from 241,073 in 2016 to 587,724 in 2041.

While the number of households with dependent children is projected to remain broadly similar between 2016 and 2041, with around a quarter of households having dependent children by 2041.

Almost all the projected increase in households by 2041 will be among one-person and multiple adult households without dependent children.
