A pretty nice infographic on the Huffington Post this morning (crediting a Brown University study, the American Community Survey, and the Daily Beast), showing the divorce rates in different states in the U.S., as well as the top cities in that regard. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/04/us-divorce-rate_n_4184261.html
Notably our little chain in the Pacific is on the lower end of the scale, averaging between 7.66-9.31 divorces per thousand people. This is just over half the rate of the states in the highest level Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Tennessee (12.64-14.35 divorces per thousand). The top 3 divorce rate cities? (1) Panama City, Florida; (2) Sierra Vista, Arizona; and (3) Charleston, West Virginia.
They didn’t happen to mention where the most divorce attorneys practice. Oh well.
