Race in America - and At Dartmouth

David Brook's "The Way We Live Now" series is the NYT's latest examination of race in America.
What is interesting is the discussion of Dartmouth blitz patterns in the second article.

"Bruce Sacerdote and David Marmaros recently did a study for the National Bureau of Economic Research trying to figure out how powerful these clusterings really are, and how friendships form.

They tracked the e-mail exchanges of a group of Dartmouth student to see who was e-mailing whom, and took that as a proxy for social contact. Not surprisingly, they found race matters. Black students send 44 percent of their e-mails to other black students, even though blacks make up only seven percent of the student body.

On the other hand, race is no more powerful than other interests. Athletes exchanged 52 percent of their e-mails with other athletes. Football players exchanged 30 percent of their e-mails with other football players, even though only 2 percent of the students fall into that category.

Students with similar SAT scores e-mail each other more frequently than students with dissimilar SAT scores, but the difference is modest."
