There are also two reasons to believe that useful trends can be determined from these data even with this flaw.First, in my previous post we saw that attractive men did equally as well across all female age groups, independent of the age of the male, so to some extent all women have similar tastes in terms of physical attractiveness.In reality, the bottom 80% of men are fighting over the bottom 22% of women and the top 78% of women are fighting over the top 20% of men. The area in blue represents the situations where women are more likely to “like” the men.
An unequal wealth distribution is to be expected, but there is a more interesting question: What is the degree of this unequal wealth distribution and how does this inequality compare to other economies?
Since I wasn’t getting any hot Tinder dates I had plenty of time to do the math (so you don’t have to). The wealth of an economy is quantified in terms its currency.
In most of the world the currency is money (or goats). The more “likes” you get the more wealth you have in the Tinder ecosystem. Attractive guys have more wealth in the Tinder economy (get more “likes”) than unattractive guys do.
To answer that question we are first going to need some data (and a nerd to analyze it).
Tinder doesn't supply any statistics or analytics about member usage so I had to collect this data myself.
