  1. Note: Controlled for respondents age, educational attainment, activity status, partnership status and number of children. For those in couple also controlled for partner’s education and activity status. To measure attitudes towards “Gender roles in the public sphere”, we use the statement: “On the whole, men make better political leaders than women do”. The attitudes are classified as either “traditional gender attitudes” (‘strongly agree’ and ‘agree’), “intermediate” (‘neither agree nor disagree’) and “egalitarian” (‘disagree’, and ‘strongly disagree’).
