Nuptiality in Latin America

NOTES

1.

The

author

is

grateful

to

doctoral

candidate

Elizabeth

Arias

for

comments

on an earlier draft, to senior programmer Julia Gray for preparing data for

computer analysis, and the University of Wisconsin’s Center for Demography and

Ecology’s Changing Household in Latin America for providing the necessary

data.

The

Center’s

facilities

funded

by

NICHD

center

grant

HD05876

are

also

gratefully acknowledged.

2. In the end it seems that results vary between places, perhaps because the

different union types have different implications for the exposure to the risk

3. Sometimes distinction was made according to the father’s marital status, by

El Salvador 1971, Guatemala 1981, Honduras 1974, Nicaragua 1971,

Panama 1980, Venezuela 1981.

5. Females in Latin America tend to receive education along with males whereas

they do not tend to have an “economic activity” other than housework if they

are

in

a

union.

Thus

the

social

demographer

can

examine

the

socioeconomic

dimension to union type by looking for a relationship between education and

union

type.

Whether

one

is

more

concerned

with

class

than

status

is

another

issue...
