Columbia university speed dating study

At the end of the event participants submit to the organizers a list of who they would like to provide their contact information to.If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties.

We went to Penn State in 1989 and after 12 ½ years there, moved to University of Vermont. (it was not the kind of speed dating you have seen on television).To figure this out, you could do "field work" at a local bar to observe the choices people make in real dating situations or sift through archived marriage announcements to see who chooses whom.But observed dating and marriage choices are at least as much a result of whom we meet as what we prefer.I am looking for interesting, unusual datasets for a data analysis class I am teaching, and I heard by email from Ray Fisman that you have a sanitized version of the data from his speed dating experiment.Indeed, the data are here; we use them in a homework assignment in our book.
