I'm attempting to do some research into the "Age-Gap" theory of the "Shidduch crisis." I've written a program to simulate a community, but right now, my virtual community acts based on my guesses of when people marry and the age of their spouses. I would like to improve my model based on real-world data (if there is any out there) and see if I can get my virtual community to behave more like the real community.
So, does anyone know of any studies that were done on Orthodox Jewish marriages in recent years? Specifically with data as to the ages of marriage of the partners?
Thanks in advance,
