Nuptial Age

Flowing Data has produced an interactive graphic showing the distribution of the age of marriage of Americans. Smoothed relative frequency distributions are shown for women (in green) and men (in orange) with selections possible by employment, education, race, or whether or not it is a first marriage. The data are from the American Community Survey marriages from 2009 to 2014. My guess is that similar frequency distributions from earlier decades would have modes that move more to the left towards younger ages for both women and me. What is the overall youngest median age of marriage for Americans? More data needed.
