So, here is a question: If a woman cares about her mate’s income and ethnicity, what would a man’s income have to be to make a woman want to contact him even though he is of a different race than her? A woman can choose between communicating with two men.

One earns ,000 a year and is the same race as her.

In the online dating data we are talking about today, for example, among whites, 49% of all women and 22% of men declare a preference for white mates while only 30% of black women and 8% of black man declare a preference for black mates.

Asians are the only ethic group in which men’s same-race preference is (slightly) greater than the women of their race, with both close to 21%.

" The research we talked about in that post also addresses the issue of interracial dating, so I thought it would be interesting to return to that paper again and ask a new question: Do women value ethnicity over income in a mate?

As I wrote earlier this week, one of the reasons economists like to use dating Web sites for data on mate choice is that people often don’t act in a way that is consistent with their stated preferences.

You won’t be surprised to know that those individuals behave in a way that is completely consistent with their stated preference.While racial bias is "highly prevalent", Denton said his research showed that very few gay and bisexual men made that preference explicit in their online dating profiles - about four percent.
