                       Sampling Variability                         of the Marriage Statistics


      In the tables which present statistics based on data from probability samples of marriage
      records, smah frequencies have high sampling variability, which limits their usefulness.
      The sampling errors are shown in table 4-7 in the TedhnicaI Appendix. It is suggested
      that any number smaller than those shown below be interpreted simply as “smah” rather
      than as any more precise value. The true number would very probably be within
      60 percent of the figure shown below. Figures for States shown as ‘iero” indicate that
      ah records were tabulated and thus data are not subject to sampling variability.

                  Sampling Variability of the Divorce Statistics


In the tables which present statistics based on data from probability samples of divorce
records, small frequencies have high sampling variability, which limits their usefulness.
The sampling errors are shown in table 44 in the Technical Appendix. It is suggested
that any number smaller than those shown below be interpreted simply as “small” rather
than as any more precise value. The true number would very probably be within
60 percent of the figure shown below. Figures for States shown as “zero” indicate that
all records were tabulated and thus data are not subject to sampling variability.
