Men Spend More Money than Women?

February 22, 1963

In The Dickinsonian, an article entitled "Statistical Survey Shows Men Spend Money on Women" begins "That it is a man's world every woman sometime or another admits." A senior at the college conducted a survey for a statistics class in which he asked 132 men and 72 women how much money they earned during summer months and how much of it they spent on various expenses througout the schoolyear. Dickinson co-eds, he found, earned less than their male counterparts over the summer. Women, however, spent more for tuition and living expenses than men. Men still spent more on social activities, including dates with women.
