Area-wise Alaska Divorce Statistics for the year 2007

As per the statistics released by the United States of America Census, the difference in the percentage of divorces taking place among the men and the women can be cited to a couple of factors. The first of these is the fact that as compared to the longevity of men, women have a greater average life span, and further they have an inclination to get married to men senior to them in age. Quite opposed to this, the statistics reveal that the rate of divorces among men are higher due to the fact that men are more likely to remarry as compared to women and with their increased number of marriages, the number of divorces also tend to be higher.

This statistics on the rate of divorces in the various regions in Alaska reveal that the number of divorces taking place in the state is high beyond expectations and is therefore the reason why Alaska as a whole, ranks among the top ten states of the nation where the rate of divorces take place every month or every year. One reason cited for this is that the individuals who tend to marry do not stay with one another for a certain duration of time and test their compatibility as is done by other individuals in the other states of the country. But all said and done, at the end of the day it is the rate of divorces which matter and any measure taken to ensure that it does not occur so frequently is something worth doing for the objective has to be to bring about a decrease in the rate of divorces taking place in the state.
