This study investigated the effects of the modernization process upon the mate selection criteria used by a sample of Indian immigrants in the U.S.A. and a sample of their counterparts in India. The research was based upon a content analysis of matrimonial advertisements in India Abroad, an English weekly newspaper published in New York City, and in four major daily English newspapers published in India, each representing a major region of that country. The major findings were that occupation was not an important criterion in mate selection in either of the two samples and that personal income, religion and caste were more significant in mate selection in India than in the U.S.A.
