Outline India is currently working with University of Pennsylvania, University of Toronto, and University of Chicago to understand the relationship between education and marriage investments amongst urban males. Engaging with working male population in different parts of Gurgaon, this study aims to gather data on some current socio-economic trends of urban India.

This study seeks to provide first evidence on how parents’ investment in their son’s educational is related to returns from marriage of the son. For this study, Outline India was closely engaged in the tool development with the client. Conducting 3 pilot rounds to test the tool, Outline India conducted interviews in different locations in Gurgaon.
