Data Notes

In the past, I have created a graphic showing the number of Americans married last year by age using data published by the American Community Survey. Today, I decided to look at another group, recent divorcees.

I used the 2017 One Year Estimates Public Use Microdata Sample to create this visualization. The data can be found on the ACS Website. I then utilized Tableau to visualize the data. If you are interested in more data like this be sure to look at my “How American’s Differ by Age” dataviz.
