Abstract:This file contains demographic data for marriages occurring in the United States during the 1979 calendar year. The data were taken from marriage certificates registered with the vital statistics offices of 42 states and the District of Columbia. The certificates for each state were chosen at one of five sampling rates (5 percent, 10 percent, 20 percent, 50 percent, or 100 percent), depending on the total number of marriages performed in the state during the year. Each record includes a weight factor based on the sampling fraction of the reporting state. The demographic data collected includes age, race, previous marital status, number of this marriage, education, and natality of both the bride and groom. Information about the marriage ceremony itself includes date, day of the week, and type of ceremony.
Universe:Marriage certificates for marriages occurring in 1979 from the vital statistics offices in 42 states and the District of Columbia.
