Abstract [en]

This thesis is a replication and a extension of Stoet and Geary’s study “The Gender-Equality Paradox in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education” (STEM). The extension consist of using repeated cross-sectional regression analysis, Spearman rank-order correlations, as well as longitudinal analysis and several additional specifications. This paper will examine if there is a relationship between gender equality and the percentage of women among STEM graduates. More specifically, this master thesis investigates whether countries with high gender equality is associated to have fewer women in STEM fields.This paper will also test the Stoet and Geary’s hypothesis by examining boys and girls absolute and relative scores in the PISA results as well to see if overall life satisfaction can mediate for some of the ascertained relationship.The main contribution of this thesis is to offer longitudinal analysis between the graduation gap and gender equality and the usage of two different datasets, one that was used by SG and one that has a longer range, that is it stretches farther back in time.
