According to the latest data released by the Ministry of civil affairs, in 2019, the national marriage registration authorities handled 9.471 million marriage registration, 4.154 million divorce registration, and reissued 4.034 million marriage certificates and divorce certificates. The divorce rate is 3.2 percent. However, if we simply divide the amount of divorce by the amount of marriage, the so-called "divorce to marriage ratio" will be as high as 44.1 percent.
In view of the phenomenon of low marriage rate and high divorce rate in China in recent years, Yang zongtao, a second level inspector of the Social Affairs Department of the Ministry of civil affairs, said that the marriage rate has decreased year by year since 2014, mainly because China has implemented the family planning policy since the 1970s and 1980s, and the decrease in the number of births has led to the decrease in the total number of marriageable population. At the same time, the popularization of higher education and the change of marriage concept also have a certain impact on the marriage rate.
At the same time, in response to such problems as "cheating marriage" by stealing identity information, Yang zongtao said that the Civil Affairs Department has taken active measures to deal with them, including implementing the memorandum of cooperation on joint punishment of the parties who have serious dishonesty in marriage registration, printing and distributing the personal credit risk notice, developing the national marriage credit management information system, and cooperating with the "credit China" platform of the national development and Reform Commission We should make joint efforts to build a credit disciplinary pattern of "one dishonesty, everywhere Limited", and increase joint disciplinary efforts for the parties who have serious dishonesty in marriage registration.
The civil affairs department also strives to improve the stability of the interconnection of marriage registration information management system, accelerate the information sharing between departments, guide marriage registration authorities at all levels to introduce on-site face recognition, fingerprint collection and comparison, human card verification, ID card reader and other technical equipment, and improve the accuracy of personal information comparison of marriage parties. At the same time, we should strengthen the management of marriage registration organs and staff training to improve the screening ability of staff.
In addition, Wang Jinhua, director of the Social Affairs Department of the Ministry of civil affairs, explained that some voices in the society equate "divorce rate" with "divorce rate", which is not scientific, rigorous or serious.
"It should be noted that the" divorce ratio "cannot be equated with the divorce rate." According to Wang Jinhua, China's divorce rate statistics adopt an international approach. The specific statistical method is: the divorce rate in a certain year = the number of divorces in a certain year / the average population in a certain year × 1000 ‰.
