Pew Research Center: The States of Marriage and Divorce

Where in the United States do people stay married? Where do some people frequently remarry? These are but a few of the questions that animate this recent study authored by D'Vera Cohn of the Pew Research Center. This report, complete with an interactive map, draws on information from the American Community Survey in order to paint a portrait of the state of marriage across the country. The report has a number of interesting findings, including the observation that a shrinking share of Americans are married and that the place with the highest median age at first marriage for men is the District of Columbia. After looking over the report, visitors should click on the interactive map to look up information for each state; the map narrates which percentage of the state's residents are currently married, currently divorced, or have been married three or more times.
