Abstract:

In political science literature, the gender gap refers to gender-based differences in public opinion, party preference, and vote choice. Research suggests that men and women differ when making political choices; specifically, women tend to identify with the Democratic Party more often and tend to be more ideologically liberal. As a result, women tend to have more liberal policy preferences than men.

The goal of this exercise is to explore the differences between men and women with respect to public opinion in areas important to political decision-making. Crosstabulation, Chi-square statistics, comparisons of means, and t-statistics will be used.
