There is no significant gender gap in intermarriage among newly married Hispanics across education levels or over time.
For black newlyweds, intermarriage rates are slightly higher among those with a bachelor’s degree or more (21%).
But size alone cannot totally explain intermarriage patterns. And while the share of the marriage market comprised of Hispanics has grown markedly since 1980, when it was 6%, their intermarriage rate has remained stable.
Perhaps more striking – the share of blacks in the marriage market has remained more or less constant (15% in 1980, 16% in 2015), yet their intermarriage rate has more than tripled.
