Nuremberg (AP) - Regensburg in Bavaria is the city with the most single households in Germany.
This was the result of a study by the Society for Consumer Research (GfK) based in Nuremberg.
Nationwide, the share of single households is 41.8 percent.
The proportion of single-person households in Germany has been increasing for years.
Behind Regensburg follow Erlangen, Würzburg, Flensburg and the capital Berlin in places two to five.
The city of Regensburg, which has a population of 150,000, had already taken the top spot in recent years.
In 2020, only one person lived there in 57.3 percent of households.
The fewest single-person households in Germany were in the Straubing-Bogen district in Lower Bavaria last year, at 30.2 percent.
GfK also evaluated where most families live in Germany.
The Upper Bavarian district of Eichstätt leads here with a share of 40.2 percent, followed by the districts of Cloppenburg in Lower Saxony (39.5 percent) and Straubing-Bogen (38.6 percent).
Very few families live in Würzburg in Lower Franconia (18.1 percent).
According to GfK, most multi-person households without children can be found in the Saalekreis district in Saxony-Anhalt, while least of them are in Berlin (23.5 percent).
