Ted Bergstrom's University of California Webpage

Abstract (also please see paper attached below):

Exploring the theory and statistical identification of two distinct models of assortative matching. One model corresponds closely to Sewall Wright's F-statistic, also known as the coefficient of inbreeding, or index of assortativity. A second model is based on random encounters in which individuals are more likely to match on an encounter with their own type than with the other 

Ted Bergstrom will also be presenting a HESP-Economics seminar later on the same day
