Women in America are not just wearing skirts, but also doing more shopping, spending less time in jail and making more money than their male counterparts, according to a new study.
The survey, conducted by the Pew Research Center, found that women spend about as much time shopping as men, but spend a greater share of their time in criminal justice.
About half of the women surveyed said they’d bought something at least once a week in the last year.
And they’re less inclined to be charged with a crime.
But that doesn’t mean they’re not spending money.
More than three-quarters of women said they spent money on groceries in the past year, and nearly three-fourths said they did not use money for anything else.
That’s not just a problem in the checkout line; women also spent more on their cellphones, computers and entertainment.
And women in the survey said they would spend more on clothing, jewelry and home decor.
“It’s not the fact that they’re wearing the same outfits that’s driving these differences,” said Sarah Kliff, a co-author of the study and a professor of economics at New York University.
But women are still the primary shoppers in the home, said Kliff.
And as they do, they’re also paying more attention to who’s in charge.
They’re also more likely to shop online.
They were also more satisfied with the quality of products they were buying and their shopping experience.
But Kliff noted that while shopping was still the number one source of income for women, the majority of those women said that they were saving money for retirement, rather than purchasing a house.
