Marriage and Divorce in the U.S.: Testing for Cohort Size Effects

Diane Macunovich ()

Department of Economics Working Papers from Department of Economics, Williams College

Abstract: Although the common wisdom -- based largely on Vital Statistics available only for period through 1988 -- is that marriage is fast becoming a defunct institution, evidence derived from annual March CPS (1964-95) is used to demonstrate that there have been substantial changes in the long-term trends in marriage and divorce within the 20- 24 age group since 1988.
