Divorce Statistics in Arizona

According to a study conducted by the American Community Survey in combination with the Daily Beast, Arizona has the highest divorce rates in the United States at 10.98-12.63 per 1,000 people successfully seeking dissolution of marriage. On top of that, Sierra Vista is No. 2 of the top 10 cities with the highest rate of divorce.

This study left many concluding that where you live could predict the likelihood that your marriage will end in divorce. Having said that, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that Arizona residents were more likely (albeit only slightly) to have been married in the past year in comparison to the national average in the USA. Experts agree that states with higher marriage rates typically have higher rates of divorce, too.

These 14 states (including Arizona) that exhibited divorce rates above the national average. Data used to compile the report was pulled from the 2009 American Community Survey. Speaking about overall averages, divorce is statistically more common in the Western and Southern regions of the United States.
