Abstract [en]

This paper studies patterns of endogamous marriages of immigrants in Spain by using data from the NationalImmigrant Survey of Spain (2007). First of all, we examine patterns of endogamous marriage and linksbetween migration and marriage. Second, we assess the factors influencing the likelihood of being in anendogamous marriage. Our analyses focus on persons married either immediately before, during or afterarrival in Spain originating from six countries: Morocco, Romania, Ecuador, Colombia, Argentina, and a groupof other developing countries. Results show that the level of endogamy is highest among the Moroccan immigrantsand lowest for those coming from Colombia. The likelihood of an endogamous union is higher for thosemarried before migration compared to those married later. Furthermore, chances on endogamy are lower formore highly educated. Women are less likely than men to be in endogamous unions.
