Note: Rates are the number of persons married per 1,000 population.2012 rate was calculated using 2011 population estimate.Beginning with 1978, marriage data for the U.S. include non-licensed marriages registered in California. If non-licensed marriages were included in the 1977 total, the marriage rate would increase from 19.8 to 20.1.

1991-1999 U.S. data are provisional.

U.S. marriages from 2000-2007 were estimated using “Table 1300. Marriage and Divorce Rates by Country”, U.S. Bureau of Census.
