“Privilege is invisible to those who have it”: Some evidence that men underestimate the magnitude of gender differences in income.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskriftPeer review

Sammanfattning

This research investigated gender differences in misperceptions of gender differences in income. We hypothesized that men misperceive and underestimate the magnitude of gender income differences to a greater extent than women. Data was collected by means of a questionnaire, and respondents' (N = 314) perceptions of income differences were compared with official statistics. Results indicated that men misperceive and underestimate the magnitude of gender differences in income more than women, which supports and extends previous research implying a selfreference effect in relation to misperceptions of economic inequality and gender issues.
