Tested indicators of social integration, socioeconomic variables, and population age on divorce rates in 3,111 counties. Found comparatively strong effects of social integration and weak socioeconomic effects on divorce. Urbanity was most strongly related to divorce; church membership and population change were equally one-half as strong. Weaker correlates of divorce were family income, age, unemployment, and percentage Hispanic. (Author/NB)
