Explaining the Gender Gap in Financial Literacy: the Role of Non-Cognitive Skills

F. Alfonso Arellano (), Noelia Camara and David Tuesta ()

No 15/32, Working Papers from BBVA Bank, Economic Research Department

Abstract: Economic literature identifies a gender gap in financial literacy. This paper tests to what extent the gender gap is due to a misspecification problem or whether it exists because boys and girls do indeed have differing ways of acquiring financial literacy.
