Huber Coauthors Article in Inaugural Issue of Sociological Science

Political Ideology and Racial Preferences in Online Dating,” a paper by Greg Huber and coauthors Ashton Anderson (Stanford University), Sharad Goel (Microsoft Research), Neil Malhotra (Stanford University) and Duncan J. Watts (Microsoft Research), has been published in the inaugural issue (February 2014) of Sociological Science, a new open-access, online, peer-reviewed, international journal for social scientists.

The paper explores evidence from an online dating community involving more than 250,000 people in the United States about the frequency with which individuals both express a preference for same-race romantic partners and act to choose same-race partners.
