"These data are counter to theory and what was previously assumed about patterns of dating and sexual behavior among U. singles," said Garcia, an evolutionary biologist, research scientist at The Kinsey Institute and assistant professor of gender studies in the College of Arts and Sciences at IU Bloomington."This new study was unusual in focusing upon the sexual and dating behavior of single parents rather than partnered parents of young children." "We know that on average, singles have relatively less sexual activity than coupled people -- singles tend to have lower rates of sexual frequency likely because they have to first find a partner to have sex with," Garcia said.Singles in America (SIA) began in 2010 as Match.com’s annual scientific study on the attitudes and behaviors of single people in the United States of America. SIA is funded and conducted by Match, in collaboration with Dr. In Years 1 and 2, SIA data was collected by Metrix Lab (then Market Tools), and in years 3 through 6, SIA data was collected by Research Now.Every year, SIA surveys over 5,200 singles across various demographics, with recruitment based on demographic distributions in the most recent U. In the interest of clarity, here we describe current SIA methodology in more detail, including research procedures and participant recruitment.
Participants were recruited exclusively from those who have registered to participate in U. based opt-in research panels established by Research Now (Dallas, TX, USA).
SIA recruitment and survey collection procedures are administered by third-party companies.
SIA data has been used in a variety of academic publications (see below).
Inclusion criteria for participants’ relationship status varied slightly by year.
Participants must have identified their relationship status as single, defined as not married, engaged, in a domestic relationship, or living with a partner.
In year 4 (2013), all participants were unmarried—meeting the U. Census definition of single—but could have been living with a partner (9.8% of the sample) or engaged (4.2% of the sample).
