Hi researchers,

I'm not sure if this information is available but I have a couple of
questions about divorce statistics in Canada (western Canada if

1. What is the divorce rate of police officers (prefer RCMP)? plus
what % are single?
2. What is the divorce rate of people who get pregnant and then marry?
3. What is the divorce rate of people who marry under the age of 25?

It does seem that the statistics you are looking for are very
difficult to find online. Most likely they will be found in the "real
world", like in libraries or magazine articles.

As one who has monitored divorce statistics sources for 7 years, your
request is way beyond anything that is readily available. I hold out
no hope for #1; I recall one reference for #2 but no longer remember
the source; longitudinal(i.e. time series) analysis of #3 has shown up
in the odd report and could probably be located via intensive web

In North America, stats are kept by state/province at best with
typical hatched/matched/dispatched marriage stats.Researchesers,
lawyers, and politicians who venture into the divorce statistics arena
are of one voice proclaiming the dearth of statistics.

May I suggest a Google search using the keywords:divorce, statistics,
Canada as a good intro to what is aval.

Also, for a more focused appreciation of the state of divorce
statistics and major sources, try:

In addition, surf Statistics Canada, Department of Justice for various
reports and data sources. Lastly, both IRS and CRA produce annual
stats of tax returns which contains basic alimony data.

You may also try long shot for RCMP question via academic thesis at or surf to U. of Michigan which has
thesis library for North America.
