OKCupid: Race, Religion, and Gender Profiling

Posted By Debbie on October 15, 2010

The dating website, OKCupid, decided to grab over a half a million profiles from its database, and start crunching numbers. It looked at a variety of things, and broke it down by gender, race, religion, and other “self-stated” profile elements.

There are some pretty wild things in there, like the grade level of people’s writing divided by their race. Eeek. They even create their own stereotypes. Eeek squared.

But if you like tag cloud and lots of charts, you might find this interesting.
