Do you think the economy can be linked to increased instances of DUI and Divorce?
Yes, the economy can also be linked to suicide,homicide, health, and mental problems.
I haven't really thought of the connection between the economy and DUI cases. There may be some correlation; I think I recall reading of the high alcoholism rates during the depression era.
As far as the divorce rate, I'd direct you to a recent NBC report on the divorce rate falling:

Just perhaps...........DUI and
Divorce, can be linked to the poor economy.
The " government" is breaking our working backs................
Americans are DROWNING ( booze) in their sorrows.
With breaking backs..............we will see broken marriages, families, systems........
Sounds like a great set of hubs... all of you. I wonder if the number of marriage is down too??? hmmm
Absolutely not....on the other hand, I because increased instances of DUI and Divorce can be linked directly to the economy!
There is probably some correlation between them, but if one looks hard enough we can find some kind of correlation between any social upheaval and the increase in DUI and Divorce rates. Any kind of hardship that is thrust on society can cause multiple types of negative reactions.
I do NOT believe that the economy has anything at all to do with the increased instances of people driving under the influence. I do believe that that a lack of judgement and common sense however are.
On the other hand a link in the increase of divorce and the economy can be made. The stress of having more bills than money has always been a nightmare for marriages! There are not enough good paying jobs to be found anymore for the average person. Even college graduates are finding it hard to find work. People who have worked for decades at one job only to have their workplace shut down and every one get laid off are having a hard time finding jobs. Don't let anyone tell you age doesn't matter! My cousin was laid off from a paper mill 4 years ago, he is 49 and can't find a job! He was a common worker who made his way up the ladder to management. He finally gave up and has gone back to college for Computer Sciences. He and his wife have come very close to divorce. He was making over $40.00 an hr and now he get's unemployment which is only about a third of what he used to make! His wife had to get a job as a factory worker. Financial Stress in a marriage is a leading cause of divorce! http://ezinearticles.com/?Financial-Str … ;id=729793
davenmidtown, the economy is blamed on just about everything and divorce could very well be one because of the high unemployment rate. However, it all boils down to how the couple can relate to each other during their hard times that most marriages experience.
I don't know about DUI, but I've heard that the economy actually keeps people together. They see that it's easier to financially stick together than it is to split up for emotional reasons. I recently heard a report about it on NPR>
It certainly doesn't help when people lose their jobs, and or their homes, DUI would just be one indication of increased drinking, and the increase could be the result of the depression caused by the economy, as well as both drinking and the economy can be stimulus for a divorce.
This correlation has already been shown. To some that is proof, but people can believe whatever they want. I guess the answer to your question is: yes it can be linked. Showing a correlation is a link.
You could never garner the amount of resources needed to find proof of causation. What good would it do to prove causation?
