According to "Number, Timing, and Duration of Marriages and Divorces: 2009," Census numbers were based on 39,000 U.S. households. 24/7 Wall St. identified the six characteristics that make a person more likely to identify themselves as divorced: income, receipt of public assistance, age, education, children and employment.

For instance, people who didn't finish college are 16 to 19 percent more likely to be recently divorced. In general, the less educated make less money and are more likely to be divorced and the recently divorced are more likely to, therefore, have less money. Women living below the poverty line are 94 percent more likely to be recently divorced, the website reports.

Men and women who work full time are 35 and 46 percent, respectively, more likely to be divorced. Some speculate that either can mean that people working full time have the financial capability to gain independence and can afford a divorce. Others believe it simply means that divorcees must work full-time because they are now supporting themselves.
