 The [[state_of_the_family_in_america|United States Family Belonging Index]] is 46 percent, with a corresponding Family Rejection Index of 54 percent, based on 2008-2012 data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. The action of parents determines the Family Belonging or Rejection Index within a nation, region, [[state_of_the_family_across_the_states|state]],​ or [[state_of_the_family_by_race|racial or ethnic group]]—whether they marry and belong to each other, or whether they reject one another through divorce or other means. Rejection leaves children without married parents committed to one another and to their children. ​ The [[state_of_the_family_in_america|United States Family Belonging Index]] is 46 percent, with a corresponding Family Rejection Index of 54 percent, based on 2008-2012 data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.
