Average family size is a measure obtained by dividing the number of members of families by the total number of families (or family householders).
What about the breakdown into individual households? There are 2.55 people per household. Incidentally, as of 2012, there are approximately 12,600,000 households in the world that have a net worth exceeding $1,000,000. Of those, 5,100,000 households are in the United States. The number of households in the United States stands at 114,235,996. That means the odds that you live in a millionaire household are 4.46%. Inverting the percentage, this translates into 1 out of every 25 homes. 1 out of every 39,015 households have $100 million or more and 1 out of every 314,700 households have $1 billion or more. (Source: 1 Out of Every 25 Households In the United States Has $1 Million or More ) Also, 47% of Americans owed no federal income taxes in 2010, although they got taxed in other ways.
