Statistics recently released by the U.S. Census Bureau compare 30-year-old Americans in 1975 vs. 2015. Some of the differences in life circumstance are dramatic. The Bureau notes that in 1975, 71% of 30-year-olds shared four experiences in common: they were (or had been) married, had a child, were not enrolled in school, and lived on their own. In 2015 these things were true of just 32% of 30-year olds.* The chart below compares two of these conditions between 30-year olds in 1975 and 2015 – “Living on their own” and “Ever married.”

It is not hard to see how these differing factors might influence a variety of shopping and usage behaviors, such as the purchase of wine, and wine consumption both on and off premise.
