NOTE: Information on the total numbers and rates of marriages and divorces
at the national and State levels are published in the NCHS National Vital Statistics Reports.
The collection of detailed data was suspended beginning in January
1996. Limitations in the information collected by the States as well
as budgetary considerations necessitated this action. The most recent
comprehensive analyses of detailed marriage and divorce data are
published in Advance Report of Final Divorce Statistics, 1989-90.
