Religion & sex   posted by Razib @ 8/07/2009 12:38:00 PM

It seems looking at the GSS that:

1) The more secularized a population segment is, the bigger the sex difference in beliefs. This is in keeping with Bryan Caplan's thesis that males become more secular once social and institutional pressures are relaxed to a greater extent than females.

2) Among the segment of the population which is rather religious to begin with (which includes more women than men) males & females are in accord in terms of beliefs.
