COMMENTARY

I wonder what factors or variables are associated with divorce. . .
Is there a correlation between stress (home foreclosures, unemployment, ill health?) and level of education?

Who cares? What does it all mean?

How do you interpret these numbers? Does this mean 7.1 percent of marriages in Nevada get a divorce every year or what??

I was wondering why Indiana & Louisiana weren't on here either. I was born,raised & married in Indiana & moved to Louisiana 3 years ago. I was going to compare the 2 states.

I am interested to know about the variables that can be studied as an impact of divorce on the society. Kindly e-mail the related researches for reference to facilitate the comparison across the cultures. Thanks.

Just wondering: Why aren't Oklahoma, Louisiana and Indiana up? Is the data lacking?
