ARTICLES ON STATISTICAL ISSUES WITH A QUEENSLAND THEME
Marriages and Divorces, Queensland, 2008
This article presents estimates of marriages and divorces registered in Queensland in 2008. Marriage and divorce statistics provide valuable information for the analysis of family formation and structure in Australia.
Marriage statistics in this article are presented by the state or territory where the marriage was registered, rather than the state of usual residence of the couple. Divorce statistics in this article are presented by the state or territory where the court granting divorce was located, rather than the state of usual residence of the applicants. The ABS advises caution in the interpretation of data at a state or territory level as couples may choose to marry outside their state or territory of usual residence and applicants for divorce may apply through their nearest court rather than a court in their state or territory of usual residence.
