Height, socioeconomic status and marriage in Italy around 1900


, : Height, socioeconomic status and marriage in Italy around 1900. Economics and Human Biology 11(4): 465-473

This study examines the role of height in the process of mate selection in two Italian populations at the turn of the twentieth century, Alghero, in the province of Sassari, and Treppo Carnico, in the province of Udine. Based on a linkage between military registers and marriage certificates, this study reveals a negative selection of short men on marriage and a differential effect of tallness by population in the process of mate choice. These findings emerge once SES is taken into account in the risk models of marriage.
