Map of divorce in Mexico

Keeping with this week’s divorce theme, here’s a map of the Mexican states where marriages are most likely to end in divorce. Perhaps not surprisingly, there seems to be an inverse correlation with the state percentage of the population that is catholic and the proportion of marriages which end in divorce. You can download the code to generate the map from my GitHub account.
