The North Carolina State Center for Health Services (SCHS) collects yearly vital statistics. The Odum Institute holds vital statistics beginning in 1968 for births, fetal deaths, deaths, birth/infant deaths, marriages and divorce. Public marriage and divorce data are available through 1999 only. North Carolina law defines marriage as the legal union of a male and a female (G.S. 51-1). Legal divorce or annulment can occur only by decree of an authorized court. Annulments, which void marr iage from the beginning, constitute less than one percent of the sum of these events. A divorce from bed and board is a judicial separation suspending cohabitation but not otherwise affecting the marriage bond. Divorces from bed and board are not included in these files. This study focuses on North Carolina divorces for 1975. Data includes information on the age and race of the plaintiff; information on the number of minor children; grounds for divorce; as well as the place, state, and date of the marriage. The data is strictly numerical, there is no identifying information given about the individuals.
