Should I Marry My Bartender? Study on Divorce Rates and Jobs
A study done by Radford University identified the professions with the highest divorce rates. These professions were identified by Michael Aamodt and Shawn McCoy as having an elevated divorce rate, based on US Census data. However, as BusinessInsider.com notes: “the study identified people who were currently divorced, not those who were previously divorced — thus it may understate the numbers.”
The data is in:
Profession Divorce Rate
Massage Therapist 38.22%
Gaming Cage Worker 34.66%
Extruding Machine Operator 32.74%
Gaming Service Worker 31.35%
Factory Worker: Food & Tobacco 29.78%
Telephone Operator 29.30%
Nursing, Psychiatric, Health Aid 28.95%
Baggage Porter, Concierge 28.49%
Why do you think certain occupations have a higher rate of divorce? Is there a correlation or is it just coincidence?
