These are the data and code to accompany Pisor & Gurven (in press) When to diversity, and with whom? Choosing partners among out-group strangers in lowland Bolivia (

NOTE: These data were collected with living people who do not wish to be identified. Please respect their wishes and do not attempt to identify any of the participants in this sample.

Data are provided in Partner choice dataset_31-Jul-17.csv, and your guide to the meaning of each variable can be found in Data dictionary_21-Jul-17.csv. 

All code provided relies on the R statistical program, as well as its implementation of the Stan program. Data must be processed using the Data restructure 31-Jul-17.r file before Stan models can be run.

The main model featured in the paper (Table 1) appears in Minimal model_29-Jul-17.r. The other models can be matched to tables and figures as follows:

NOTE: These models feature 100 imputed data sets. Accordingly, these models were run on a UNIX server, and the parallelization we used cannot be handled by (most) personal computers. If you are not running this code on a server, omit the parallel processing code to avoid crashing your computer.
