This summer, All Things Considered has been looking at the lives of men in America, and so far, the research seems to indicate that the new American man doesn’t look much like his father. As an overview to their findings, they’e sharing a few charts to track the changes from 1960 to present day. They say, “We’ve charted some of the more surprising changes… It’s important to note that in all instances we are depicting the generalized American man, flattened across racial and socio-economic groups. Looking at the statistics through any of those or other lenses can admittedly provide a different picture.”
Check out the graphics, and let us know: do any of these results surprise you?
