Here is a compilation of some divorce information taken by the CDC for the years 1896-1967.

Some of the earlier surveys asked how many children were affected but the answers are sketchy. At least they tried. Looks like the average divorcing couple had an average of 1.5-2.0 children.

It is interesting how Divorce rates have risen after Wars end. Divorce is War. Probably the Veteran’s come home with PTSD. Or Marriages were rushed before soldiers were deployed.

It looks like there were Divorce Booms in the 1920’s and the 1950’s. Not included would be the Divorce Boom in the 1970’s and 80’s.

California and some other state’s hasn’t contributed any data to the CDC’s records since the early 1980’s. This increases the stigma for growing up in Divorce a huge deal since obviously it’s not important. California rarely elects a politician to run the state who is from Divorce.
