Abstract
“Men from March, women from Venus” is a bachelor thesis where the Swedish populations consumption habits of the product groups clothes, underwear and shoes are individually examined through statistical analysis. The aim of the thesis is to examine if any differences between male and female consumption of those product groups can be determined for the first year of the financial crisis. This is determined through the analysis of SCB: Statistics Sweden’s aggregated data over household expenses (HUT) for the year of 2009. Further the thesis examines comparisons between different age groups within each gender and between the years of 2008 and 2009.
The statistical model utilized throughout the thesis is called the One Way Analysis of... (More)
“Men from March, women from Venus” is a bachelor thesis where the Swedish populations consumption habits of the product groups clothes, underwear and shoes are individually examined through statistical analysis. The aim of the thesis is to examine if any differences between male and female consumption of those product groups can be determined for the first year of the financial crisis. This is determined through the analysis of SCB: Statistics Sweden’s aggregated data over household expenses (HUT) for the year of 2009. Further the thesis examines comparisons between different age groups within each gender and between the years of 2008 and 2009.
The statistical model utilized throughout the thesis is called the One Way Analysis of Variance-model and is represented in an ANOVA table. This model renders it possible to compare two groups and look for significant difference between them.
The results obtained through the analysis primarily show that the consumption of all three product groups does differ between women and men during 2009. The product group that differs the most with respect to age is underwear. In this product group significance is found in all of the analyzed age groups. It is also determined that men of the age 65 years and older consume the least and that females of the age 30-49 years consume the most. In the comparison between the years 2008 and 2009 no significant difference is found in the Swedes’ consumption within the specified product groups. (Less)
