Ohio married couples are more likely to have kids than those in other states, according to new data from the National Marriage Project.
In 2014, OHIO was the only state where couples were more likely than other couples to have children, and the data shows that that trend is continuing.
The data was gathered in conjunction with the University of Cincinnati, and shows that couples with children are more than twice as likely to be married in OHIO as couples with no children.
In the last 10 years, OHio married families are 2.4 times more likely (23.5 percent) to have a child than couples with none (12.5) or a single parent (7.5).
In the previous 10 years OHIO had the most married couples in the country, with 29.4 percent of its married couples having children.
Ohio also had the second highest number of married couples with only one child (10.5), and OHIO ranked second to last in having a single adult with no kids (5.9).
OHIO also had one of the highest divorce rates in the nation (24.5 per 1,000), with nearly half of couples in OHI having children with no spouses in the household.
That may come as a surprise to couples in other Ohio cities like Akron, Toledo, and Columbus, which had relatively low divorce rates.
