Gender Differences in Economics--Fact or Artefact?
Lietz, Petra; Kotte, Dieter
Journal of Research and Development in Education, v32 n4 p213-23 Sum 1999
Investigated gender differences in economics education and achievement, using data from a study of Australian secondary school students that collected data on student background and economics achievement (via the Test of Economic Literacy). Results showed few gender differences related to item bias, total performance, and student background factors, challenging the widely held view that gender differences exist in economics achievement.
