Sociological research online dating
We find that dating markets in each city are partitioned into submarkets along lines of age and ethnicity. The data are protected under institutional review board–approved guidelines for HUM00075042.
Sex ratio varies widely between submarkets, with younger submarkets having more men and fewer women than older ones.
There is also a noticeable tendency for minorities, especially women, to be younger than the average in older submarkets, and our analysis reveals how this kind of racial stratification arises through the messaging decisions of both men and women.
