My research has explored ‘two-sided’ matching problems, where choices are made by two sets of actors. I am currently working on four papers involving two-sided modeling of social outcomes: 1) a multivariate, two-sided analysis of the relative importance of worker versus firm preferences in the differential allocation of women versus men to part-time employment, using PSID data; 2) a re-analysis of a standing mobility table theory using a relevant cross-national data set; 3) a more pointed theoretical critique of the use of log-linear models in mobility table analysis; 4) an invited contribution to the journal Sociological Theory to discuss my distinctive approach to survey-based research. These papers are supported by my completed development of a Stata software package called tsmreg, without which the adoption of this type of analysis would be too onerous, especially in larger data sets like the PSID.
