CRUDE MARRIAGE RATE
Although the number of marriages is now the highest on record, the population has also increased substantially over time. As a result, the crude marriage rate is now lower than it was 20 years ago.
In 2010, the crude marriage rate was 5.4 marriages per 1,000 estimated resident population, a decrease compared with 6.9 marriages per 1,000 estimated resident population in 1990.
Between 1990 and 2001, the crude marriage rate declined from 6.9 to 5.3 marriages per 1000 population. However, after a slight increase to 2004, there has since been little variation since 2005.
