The formulas used to create this calculator are primarily based on information gathered in face-to-face interviews with 10,847 women age 15-44 in 1995 and 12,571 men and women aged 15-44 in 2002.

The interviews were conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Health Statistics as part of National Survey of Family Growth.

The formulas used to create this calculator are also based on analyses of those statistics provided in reports entitled Cohabitation, Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage in the United States, Series 23, Number 22, July 2002, and Marriage and Cohabitation in the United States: A Statistical Portrait Based on Cycle 6 (2002) of the National Survey of Family Growth, Series 23, Number 28, (PHS) 2010-1980, February 2010.

Please note that the information presented in this calculator is based on analyses of a nationally representative sample of households in the United States. If you live in a different country, your outcome may be slightly different.
