This New Data Map Shows Where You Grow Up Affects If You Will Get Married

    There seems to be data for EVERYTHING these days. But, today’s latest data set from the New York Times perked up our eyes and fingers (we clicked on it). Today’s data set shows that where you grow up impacts WHEN and IF you get married. Yeah, I bet that perked your interest, right? Well, the data set (which you can view in full animation mode here) shows that if you grew up in the upper western United States there is a pretty darn good chance that by your 26th birthday you will be or have already been married. However, if you grew up in say Southern California, Connecticut or Massachusetts there is a pretty good chance that your 26th will come and go being single (womp womp).

    One other interesting take-away from the data shows that Washington D.C. is highest on discouraging marriage. Kind of sad being it’s our nation’s capitol….

    Where does your county rate?

    1. Always interesting looking at these charts. I can always find my area right away. It’s the one spot that’s completely different and worse than everything else around it. But I still love my area. 😛
