Abstract:This assessment is an introduction to the Oxford Review of Economic Policy's issue on gender and the life cycle. It sets the stage by providing background information on various dimensions of gender differences, pointing out differences across countries as well as over time, and relates this evidence to the papers that follow. It further briefly reviews the articles in the issue and puts them into context.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
