Massachusetts Has The Lowest Divorce Rate In The Nation

Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Marital Mediation charts the divorce rate by state. Nevada predictably has the highest divorce rate, along with probably the highest next-day divorce rate, but Arkansas isn’t as far behind as you might think.

I don’t see much of a pattern here, but Massachusetts and D.C. manage the lowest divorces per capita.

Note that California and Indiana are not included as they don’t publish their current divorce numbers.

        It’s under the chart “Note that California and Indiana are not included as they don’t publish their current divorce numbers.” I bet it’s like the #1 lol

    What do the astericks symbolize here? Minnesota, Georgia, Louisiana, and Hawaii all have one.

        I believe the chart creators could not obtain Census information for all states, so data was obtained through the WSJ for states with asterisks.
