Census: Arizona has high number of second marriages

The U.S. Census Bureau released a report earlier this month detailing national statistics on second marriages, revealing that Arizona has a statistically higher number of remarried residents than most states.

And that high ranking is surely inflated in some way by Kingman and Prescott, Ariz. residents, who have the two highest percentages of twice-or-more-married people. A staggering 41.7 percent of residents 15 and older in Kingman have been married twice or more; 40 percent of Prescott residents in the same age bracket have been married at least twice.

As a state, Arkansas leads the nation in percentage of remarried residents, with 35 percent of its over-15 population having said wedding vows at least twice.

New Jersey, meanwhile, has the lowest percentage of remarried residents, with just 16 percent of its population fitting the criteria.
