California may be seen by some as the anything goes state, but it's actually a lot more traditional than many people would think.

A new Census Bureau report finds that the golden state is pretty average when it comes to families -- 49.4 percent of California households are traditional husband and wife, 1 percent higher than the national average.

Singles make up 23.3 percent of households. Nationally, that number is 26.7 percent.

California only stands out when it comes to interracial relationships, ranking sixth in the nation at 17.6 percent. The national average is 9.5 percent.
