Gray Divorce Rate in the U.S.

The overall divorce rate in the U.S. has declined since 1990. Yet among those aged 50 and older it has roughly doubled according to a report from the National Center for Family & Marriage Research (NCFMR) in Bowling Green State University. Data for this report comes from the 1990 U.S. Vital Statistics Report and the American Community Survey (ACS) both 1-year estimates and 5-year estimates.
