Description
Researchers examined the interaction of gender and education as influences on mate selection characteristics for 55 male and 111 female African American college students at a historically college/university. Students, age 17 to 38, were asked to rate 22 mate selection characteristics according to their importance in selecting a partner. A factor analysis yielded three factor scores (social stratification, personality, and physical variables) that were significant only for gender across the social and physical variables.
