Interesting Chart on Age as People Marry

Every so often I stumble on interesting statistics and good simple business graphics that show them. That applies to this line chart of Median age at first marriage by sex: 1890-2010 published by Imgur at imgur.com, and developed by the U.S. Census:

I’m intrigued with the way the marriage age dropped suddenly after the second world war, then increased steadily for several decades. And is still increasing today. I like it when actual data matches what we see in the real world, and we definitely see people waiting to marry at more advanced ages.

Sometimes this kind of data generates business ideas, business opportunities, or business threats. Does it affect your business?
