Should local authorities work to make cities more attractive to singles? Cities should consider that young adults often move when they are single but stay in place when they get married.By attracting more singles, those singles will eventually begin to form more young families with each other and settle down in that area, contributing to the continued vibrancy of the local economy.
They tend to have more public life, more places that draw you out of your apartment and into the social world.
Many nights you'll want to use your home as a launching pad, not just a place to hunker down.
Hiking in local state or national parks and cooking a special dinner together at home also can make for a fun time on a budget.
Singles are typically a net economic gain, because they pay a higher tax rate (including indirectly paying for property taxes via their rent), spend more money on consumables like alcohol and music shows, and do not draw upon services like public schools.
Finally, singles often eat out at restaurants or order takeout more than families because they feel it's not worth the effort to cook for themselves, and in general participate more in city nightlife.
