Question Need help comprehending a Spanish paragraph

El efecto del «divorcio exprés» en España

En 2005, el gobierno de España introdujo un proyecto de ley para el «divorcio exprés», que permite el divorcio sin la separación física. En 2006, se registraron 126.952 divorcios en España, un aumento de 74,3* por ciento en comparación con 2005. El aumento más grande fue entre los recién casados: 945 parejas se divorciaron en el primer año de matrimonio, un aumento de 330,6 por ciento.

Question: ¿En qué porcentaje aumentaron los divorcios en 2006?

I thought this question is pretty easy,
Because I know what the question is asking about.
The question asks "what is the percentage of the number of divorced incresed in the year of 2006?"
However, in the paragraph, I think there is no information about the number of divorced that increase in the year of 2006.
There is a 74.3% of increase compare to the number of divorce with the year of 2005, but here is no information on the paragraph that can help me with the question.

Here is some wrong answer that the grading system told me after I entered them:

74,3 por ciento
74.3 por ciento

Am I missing something here? Or that's just a unclear question?
