HOwever, I wonder. Is this based on residents, or where the marriage takes place? Because clearly PA is not a “destination” for weddings like Las Vegas, Vermont, etc.

Wow, PA, 0-6 marriages per 1000 people? That’s just depressing.

@love108:  That is actually a very good point, and that could explain why Nevada has such an outlandishly-high rate…

Texas is right in the middle!  I’m surprised actually, I thought it would be more

The PA thing is very interesting…because it’s impossible to book a decent wedding venue/dj/caterer/cake decorator in my area if you don’t look at least a year out!

@kimberlyr22:  I think we have to remember though, this isn’t the rate of total people married (it’s not saying that 6 of 1000 people ARE married) I thought it was saying in the given year, that’s how many people GOT married. Correct me if I’m wrong, but that sort of makes more sense to me. Unless you’re at that age (20s) when everyone’s friends are getting married after graduation, etc, etc, personally I don’t know 1000 people, and I don’t know more than 6 people getting married (not even close!) this year!

It is where marriages take place to residents. So I will count as DC, even though I live in VA. And this is a stat that you want to have low– fewer marriages normally mean fewer remarriages. A state with a high marriage rate is one that is more likely to have multiple marriages (military, get married young, be tolerant of divorce, middle income)

Definitely on the low low low end, but what does this graph even mean? What are the implications of the data?
