Abstract

We used micro-data from the 1970 and 2000 censual rounds to compare patterns of educational assortative mating between consensual unions and marriages. The included countries are Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico and Panama. We apply log-linear analysis to control for the educational attainment of spouses and to investigate whether there are differences in patterns of educational homogamy by union type. Results show non-significant differences between marriages and consensual unions.
