A Long Data Set For Korean Marriage Migration
A new paper traces marriage based migration in Korea using a data set derived from a continuous 750 years of marriage records. Notably, the patterns that emerge are starkly different from comparable data in the Czech Republic, suggesting that a simple assumption that marriage based migration follows universal patterns is false. Alas, it is quite challenging to sum up and describe the Korean data set without resort to quite technical terminology and unfamiliar concepts, although I may attempt this on another day.
