Hope Scott, Paul Berger and Bruce Weinberg recently published an interesting study that I don’t know quite what to make of.
The study titled, Determinants of the U.S. Divorce Rate: The Impact of Geography and Demography, asserts that where you live has an impact on the divorce rate. They suggest that personality types vary by region and the distribution of males and females varies by region. They suggest that these factors contribute to the overall likelihood of marriage and subsequent divorce. So what do you think?
They cite work by Richard Florida on the “personalities” of different regions of the US, do you think personalities vary by region? Why?
