Emergence and characterization of sex differences in spatial ability: a meta-analysis.
Meta-analysis is used, a method for synthesizing empirical studies, to investigate sex differences in spatial ability and suggests that sex differences arise on some types of spatial ability but not others, and that, when sex differences are found, they can be detected across the life span. Expand
Cross-national patterns of gender differences in mathematics: a meta-analysis.
Gender equity in school enrollment, women's share of research jobs, and women's parliamentary representation were the most powerful predictors of cross-national variability in gender gaps in math. Expand
Gender differences in verbal ability: A meta-analysis.
Many regard gender differences in verbal ability to be one of the well-established findings in psychology. To reassess this belief. Y.'C located 165 studies that reported data on gender differencesExpand
