Federal marriage statistics are usually released a year or two after the date to which they apply, making official data of limited usefulness to the wedding industry.
Charlottesville, Virginia (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
Two years in advance of the 2015 release of U.S. Marriage rates for 2012 by the CDC, the U.S. Marriage Forecast, published by Demographic Intelligence, accurately predicted 2012 marriages within 14,000.
Using advanced algorithms to determine the number of marriages, Demographic Intelligence has been able to forecast marriages at an astonishing accuracy rate 99.45%.
The U.S. Marriage Forecast provides projections of U.S. marriages from 2013-2025 and detailed breakdowns of marriages for 2013-2017 by income, education, race, and ethnicity.
This 2015 U.S. Wedding Forecast is based on a statistical model of marriages in the last two decades, generating insight into the key socioeconomic and cultural drivers of marriage in the U.S. The DI model may include measures of unemployment, consumer confidence, Google wedding search terms, and religiosity—all key predictors of marriage in the United States. The DI forecast is especially valuable because federal marriage statistics are usually released a year or two after the date to which they apply, making official data of limited usefulness to the wedding industry.
