Mobile Users: If you are having issues using the interactive version of this visualization, you can find a static version of it here.
The data for this visualization comes from the American Community Survey which is completed by the US Census Bureau. I used the 2014 One Year Estimates Public Use Microdata Sample which can be found on the ACS Website. This visualization uses Tableau to show the age of people married in the past 12 months.
