<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Scott Schaefer

Utah ranks last for female political participation in the United States, according to the Institute for Women’s Policy and Research. This study is interested in understanding what factors contribute to the political gender gap in this state. The primary analysis is based on quantitative models that combine general and primary election data, campaign finance records, census data, and Utah voter registration information to test for differences in outcomes between male and female candidates.
