SpeedDating: Speed Dating


Data from a sample of four minute speed dates.


A dataset with 276 observations on the following 22 variables.


Participants were students at Columbia's graduate and professional schools, recruited by mass email, posted fliers, and fliers handed out by research assistants. Each participant attended one speed dating session, in which they met with each participant of the opposite sex for four minutes. Order and session assignments were randomly determined. After each four minute "speed date," participants filled out a form rating their date on a scale of 1-10 on various attributes. Only data from the first date in each session is recorded here.
