Gender Differences in Attitude toward Economics.
McTeer, J. Hugh
Approximately 1820 high school seniors from 14 schools in Georgia were surveyed to determine their attitudes toward five areas of the social studies: economics, geography, government, history, and psychology/sociology. Results indicated that economics was selected as the least-liked subject area more often than any other social studies area. In relation to the subject area selected as the most liked, students chose economics below history and psychology/sociology but higher than geography and government. College-bound students expressed a less favorable attitude toward economics than did seniors who did not plan to attend college. No gender differences were found in relation to economics being the least liked subject area. However, a significantly larger number of females chose economics as being most liked than did males.
