Here is a new working paper of mine, jointly written with Shatanjaya Dasgupta, that reviews the literature on marriage markets in developing countries. It will appear as a book chapter in the Oxford Handbook of Women and the Economy, edited by Susan L. Averett, Laura M. Argys and Saul D. Hoffman, Oxford University Press.
The Handbook seems to be quite promising; here are a few other chapters that I have come across:
- The Causes and Consequences of Increased Female Education and Labor Force Participation in Developing Countries, by Rachel Heath and Seema Jayachandran
- Maternity and Family Leave Policy, by Maya Rossin-Slater
- Marriage and Marriage Markets, by Shoshana Grossbard
- Maternal Socio-economic Status and the Well-being of the Next Generation(s), by Kasey S. Buckles
