A Data Affair Part One: Tiger Woods and Divorce Rates by Sydney Beveridge
The media already covered the moment when Tiger Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren took off her wedding ring.
To add context, you can research rates of separation and divorce across the country with Social Explorer.
A quick report will tell you that nationwide divorce rates have increased from 3.3 percent in 1970 to 10.5 percent in 2006.
You can also drill down to a single census tract. For example, you can look at the 9.8 percent divorce rate in the Lake Isleworth, Florida, a community where one new divorce may soon be added to the tally.
