Your translation of the question was correct.

If the question had been "¿En qué porcentaje aumentaron los divorcios en 2006 en comparación con 2005?" would this have made more sense to you?

By my interpretation, "the increase in 2006" by definition has to be compared to a previous year. Unless otherwise specified (for example, "an increase in the last ten years"), it follows that it describes an increase from the previous year ... just my opinion.
