There is high variance in American households now.

Did they need the qualifier "biological"? 

I think what this qualifier meant was that the children in these 4% are truly the biological progeny of both parents.  Does that make sense?

Yes, yes, yes!  Explains the 4% if blended families are excluded.

I'm glad I could help.  It shows how distorted our notion of the American "nuclear family" really is.
