Orange County census: Orange County remains a bastion of conservative family values - latimes.com

Orange County, home to 3 million people, has the lowest percentage of single-parent households of any county in Southern California, according to a Times analysis of U.S. Census Bureau figures, as well as the lowest percentage of households occupied by opposite-sex unmarried couples.

"Change is happening, just at a slower pace," said Edward Flores, the project manager with the population dynamics research group at USC.

The result is a pervasive sense of tradition in some pockets of the county — which certainly exists in other areas of the region, but exists more in Orange County, proportionally and statistically speaking.
