Whose Will Dominates? Individual, Family and Community Influences on Participation in Spouse Selection

a PSC Small Fund Research Project

Investigator:   Colter Mitchell

I propose to examine child autonomy, parental power and social control as evidenced by the influences of individual, parental and community beliefs about the level of participation youth should have in selecting their spouse on later spouse choice behavior. I pay particular attention to the role of education as an allocator of social status and autonomy. I plan to use data from the Chitwan Valley Family Study (N= 734) to examine this issue, but require additional measures of extent to which these youth participated in their spouse selection. The Marshall Weinberg Summer Research Fellowship would provide funding for my travel to Nepal to collect this information and analyze these new data.

Funding Period: 10/01/2006 to 12/31/2007
