Keya Paha County, nestled between the Niobrara and Missouri rivers, is one of Nebraska’s least populated counties, with an estimated 790 people. Like many rural counties, it has seen a dramatic population decrease over the past century. 
Combating the population decline is key reason why the foundation fund was created, and many of its projects seek to create more opportunities for residents.

Comparing Nebraska Population Change by Race and Ethnicity.  (Uniersity of Nebraska-Omaha, 9/17/2017)
When studying population change in Nebraska during the 2000s decade, it is clear that county level changes were far from uniform. While the state increased by about 115,000 people, only 24 of the state’s 93 counties experienced a population gain. Nearly 75% of Nebraska’s counties had a population decline during the decade, one of the largest such percentages of counties among all states in the Midwest and Great Plains areas of the United States.

Young adult are waiting longer to get married, ergo, thi will obviously result in more never-married adults.


Rising Share of Never-Married Adults, 1960-2012

Since Helen is cherry-picking here, I'll add some context from Pew.
But delayed marriage may not explain all of the drop-off. The share of Americans who have never married has been rising steadily in recent decades. At the same time, more adults are living with a partner instead of marrying and raising children outside of marriage. Marriage rates are also more closely linked to socio-economic status than ever before, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau da that shows that the education gap in marital status has continued to widen.  (Trends in the Share of Never-Married Americans and a Look Forward, 9/24/2014)

5/1/2019 update.

More from our supply and demand pundit, Helen Andrews, as opined in "Who Will Defend the American Family?"

The mass entry of women into the work force is one reason for this financial insecurity. Ms. Warren said as much in her book, [Ms. Andrews source?  Tucker Carlson] although she has since backed away from such a politically explosive suggestion. Those of us who don’t have a Democratic primary ahead of us can say what she won’t: When mothers started entering paid employment in large numbers in the 1970s, it led to a bidding war over middle-class amenities that left everyone paying more for the privilege of being no better off than before.
Throughout this op-ed piece, she offers nothing to back up her pronouncements.

I don't see any evidence of a mass entry in this graph.



The percentage of men and women in the civilian work force has remained stable during the past 3 decades.
