When Japanese men want to divorce


goo Ranking can be serious too, with this look at when men feel that it is time to split with their wives demonstrates.


Over the 29th of February and the 1st of March 2012 1,175 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 61.4% of the sample were female, 10.0% in their teens, 16.5% in their twenties, 29.3% in their thirties, 24.1% in their forties, 10.6% in their fifties, and 9.5% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample. This survey is for men only.

    This is very confusing information.
    “This survey is men only”. Yet, “61.4% of the sample were female”?
    It’s not a percentage but “results refers to the relative number of votes”?
    The total does not equal “454”: Meaning the men only/61% women choose as many of the 20 reason as they saw fit? Did they generate their own answers and then calculate them?
    Was there a list to choose from?
    Many of these are the same answer using different words?

    As far as I can tell,
    there is a 150% chance that I will be divorced by the end of the week.
