MetadataShow full item record
The issue of gender inequality across the globe is a captivating issue, especially in regard to education. This paper examines the gender gap in education by dividing countries into developed and developing nations and attempts to uncover the relationship between expected female years of schooling and gross national income per capita. Other explanatory variables such including poverty headcount ratio, religious importance, literacy rate, infant mortality rate, and urban population are used to strengthen the model. Using data from 2017 and 2018, a positive correlation between expected years of schooling and GNI per capita is hypothesized and supported, along with the other variables, religious importance, poverty headcount ratio, and infant mortality rate, being negatively correlated while literacy rate and urban population rate were positively correlated.
