Does unemployment make men less 'marriageable'?
This paper distinguishes three marital states: married; cohabiting; and single. It examines, applying the method of multinomial logit to data on men, aged 18–30, drawn from the Family Expenditure Survey for the UK, the extent to which their probabilities, of being in each of these states, is affected by their economic status and by their educational level. It concludes that being unemployed significantly reduces the chances of men being married.
