Can Money Buy Equality? Partnership Equality of High-Income Couples

Track: Works-in-Progress

Keywords: Gender_Equality; Dual-Career_Couples; Family_Income

Can money buy equality? This study conducts a quantitative analysis of proprietary survey data to explore the research question: do high-income, dual-career couples operate more equitably than comparatively moderate or low-income dual-career couples? Parametric and nonparametric comparison of means testing of the two income groups finds statistically significant results indicating a positive relationship between the high-income group and calculated partnership equality. However, including this variable in multiple regression modeling does not produce the hypothesized significant results. Theoretical background of dual-career couples, variable selection, quantitative analysis results and interpretation, and limitations and further research are discussed.
