Marriages and divorces

There was a slight upward movement in the marriage rate in Australia in 1998. At the same time the divorce rate declined for the second year in succession. The marriage rate trend has been in a long-term decline and the divorce rate in a long-term upward trend. However it is too early to say whether the 1998 changes will continue. For further information see Marriages and Divorces, Australia, 1998 (Catalogue No. 3310.0, $27). (Click here to see main features from the publication.)
