Recent data from the OECD PISA (2012) highlight that there are no differences in financial literacy between boys and girls in all participating countries with the exception of Italy where boys perform significantly higher. In this light, we analyze the determinants and “dynamics” of this gap among Italian 15-year-olds students applying some counterfactual decomposition methods. Main findings reveal that although the majority of the gender gap is explained by differences in the coefficients, an important role in this differential is played by the attitudes to problem solving and the scholastic behavior.
