Men and Women, Marriage and Work

I created a graph of 5 different statistics from 1960 to 2010. Some of the values are interpolated, and some of the statistics were read off other graphs, so they may not be perfectly accurate. They are all percentages except for the marriage rate, which is per 10000 to give it the same scale. All are US statistics. Here they are:


Note how both men employed and men ever married (100 – adult men never married) are in decline, along with marriage and the percentage of adult women ever married. Only the number of women employed is increasing, though it seems to have plateaued at 60%.
