Shehan, Constance L.; And Others
Journal of Family Issues, v12 n3 p291-305 Sep 1991
Examined data from Public Use Sample of 1980 Census to identify salient sociodemographic correlates of women's likelihood of marrying outside normative age patterns. Found that black women were significantly more likely than white women to be in age-heterogamous marriages. Remarried subjects exhibited highest probability of entering such unions. (Author/NB)
