In partnership with The Allstate Foundation, Junior Achievement’s 15th Teens and Personal Finance Survey examines teens’ and tweens’ attitudes and behaviors around managing money.

Key findings of Junior Achievement’s 2014 Teens and Personal Finance Survey reveal a gender gap across numerous money-related topics. Specifically, boys and girls view
budgeting, college plans, and anticipating future earnings in very different ways.

 

Budgeting
There is a significant disparity in the budgeting habits of male and female teens ages 16-18.

College
There is an emerging financial gender gap relative to higher education.

Career
Teen boys and girls have significantly different expectations about their earning
power in their first “real” job out of college.
