Gender and internet dating
Alex Dang is a sophomore pursuing a double major in Computer Engineering and Economics at the University of Maryland.
He would like to thank his parents for their support, his instructor Justin Lohr for convincing him to submit this digital forum, and the staff for putting this online journal together.
Let’s examine gender ratio further using third-party demographic data.
Demographic Data Quantcast is a media measurement service that calculates and publishes website audience metrics, including demographics.
General public attitudes towards online dating have become much more positive in recent years, and social networking sites are now playing a prominent role when it comes to navigating and documenting romantic relationships.
These are among the key findings of a national survey of dating and relationships in the digital era, the first dedicated study of this subject by the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project since 2005.
Online dating is also relatively popular among the college-educated, as well as among urban and suburban residents.
Some 79% of online daters agree that online dating is a good way to meet people, and 70% of them agree that it helps people find a better romantic match because they have access to a wide range of potential partners.
