Areas with greatest gender differences in responses

The PaEE review Workbook suggests that a 10% difference between the responses of men and women be used as a guideline for determining areas where further investigation could be useful.

Differences disadvantaging women are in pink font; those disadvantaging men are in blue font; and where disadvantage caused by the difference is not clear the font is black.
