【题目】Do You Like My Parents? Intergenerational Marital Sorting: Evidence from a Field Experiment  

【时间】2022年6月16日(周四)14:00

【地点】经管学院文二栋301会议室

【主讲人】邓卫广副教授

【主持人】董志强教授

【内容摘要】

We investigate the causal impacts of parents’ occupations on children’s marriage matching via a field experiment on an online dating website. We find that first, individuals whose parents have higher socioeconomic status occupations enjoy significant advantages in the marriage market, both in terms of matching opportunities and qualities. Second, individuals who are higher, younger, better-looking, have higher income and education, own housing, and have better parental characteristics are more demanding on spouses’ parental occupations. Third, motivation analyses suggest individuals prefer spouses whose parents are characterized by high income, high social status, and low elder care costs. Finally, we show that the preference for spouses with high socioeconomic status parents may lead to a rise in inequality and a fall in intergenerational mobility.
