The Gender Difference of Peer Influence in Higher Education
Han, Li; Li, Tao
Economics of Education Review, v28 n1 p129-134 Feb 2009
Investigations of the existence of residential peer effects in higher education has shown mixed results. Using data from a Chinese college, we find no evidence of robust residential peer effects. Using the same data we find evidence that females respond to peer influences, whereas males do not, consistent with social psychology theories that females are more influenced by peers. (Contains 5 tables.)
