The crude marriage rate expresses the number of marriages formed each year as a ratio to the total population; similarly, the crude divorce rate is the number of these marriages that is dissolved in a given year, also expressed with respect to population size. Both measures disregard families based on informal partnerships and other types of legal unions (as introduced recently in some OECD countries) as well as married but separated spouses. All of these statistics ‐ which are derived from Council of Europe, Eurostat and other national sources ‐ are based on administrative registers.
