A new study claims black men cheat more than any other race of men and claims to have data to prove it. In addition to gender and age, the study shows that the infidelity rate changes based on a number of other demographic and social factors.
The study claims to find that cheating is somewhat more common among black adults. Some 22% of ever-married blacks said that they cheated on their spouses, compared with 16% of whites and 13% of Hispanics. And among black men, the rate is highest: 28% reported that they had sex with someone other than their spouses, compared with 20% of white men and 16% of Hispanic men.
In general, men are more likely than women to cheat: 20% of men and 13% of women reported that they’ve had sex with someone other than their spouse while married, according to data from the recent General Social Survey.
The result of the study adds that:
A person’s political identity, family background, and religious activity are also related to whether or not they cheat. Overall, Democrats, adults who didn’t grow up in intact families, and those who rarely or never attend religious services are more likely than others to have cheated on their spouse. For example, 15% of adults who grew up with both biological parents have cheated on their spouse before, compared with 18% of those who didn’t grow up in intact families.
