Exploring the Gender Gap: A Data-Driven Learning Guide (ICPSR 307)

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates the differences between men and women with respect to public opinion in areas important to political decision-making. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: what factors may lead women to identify more with the Democratic Party, how men and women differ with respect to issue-related attitudes and policy preferences, and whether the ideological and political differences between men and women can be explained. Crosstabulation, Chi-square statistics, comparison of means, and T-statistics are used for the analyses.
