Marriage Matching with Correlated Preferences

Onur Celik () and Vicki Knoblauch ()

No 2007-16, Working papers from University of Connecticut, Department of Economics

Abstract: Authors of experimental, empirical, theoretical and computational studies of two-sided matching markets have recognized the importance of correlated preferences. We develop a general method for the study of the effect of correlation of preferences on the outcomes generated by two-sided matching mechanisms. We then illustrate our method by using it to quantify the effect of correlation of preferences on satisfaction with the men-propose Gale-Shapley matching for a simple one-to-one matching problem.
