Patterns of partnership mobility

Partnership Status at T + 1
Partnership Status at T➔ No Partner (5,732; 28.9%)➔ Different-Sex Partner (16,721; 70.2%)➔ Same-Sex Partner (220; 1.0%)% of All Respondents Who Moved Out of Category From T to T + 1% of All Respondents Who Moved Into Category From T to T + 1
No Partner (5,452; 28.7%) 76.5 22.7 0.9 6.8 6.9 
Different-Sex Partner (17,002; 70.3%) 9.5 90.4 0.1 6.8 6.6

Notes: N = 22,673 respondents, each observed twice. T = Wave 3 (2011–2013). T + 1 = Wave 9 (2017–2019). Row percentages are reported in the cross-tabulation of mobility patterns (i.e., columns 1–3), which may not add up to 100% because of rounding. Data are weighted statistics with unweighted sample sizes. Figures in parentheses are the n and corresponding percentage of each subgroup (n; %). The total percentages of respondents moving out of and moving into categories may not match exactly owing to rounding, and the partner's sex changed between T and T + 1 for 0.1% of all respondents.
