This is a must-read interactive from The New York Times that will allow you to identify how many people and who lives in your household. The interactive also allows you to see how many other households are like yours in the US.
Although most readers of this blog do not live in the US, the interactive gives us a great opportunity to have a look at the variety of family patterns in today's global world.
After the interactive, you can read the main article in The New York Times here.
You can also read this slideshow in preparation for the five-minute video which is embedded in the main article. The difficulty of the video is quite high, but I think most Intermediate 2 students will find it within their grasp if they have read the article and seen the slideshow beforehand.
