  3. 3. INTRODUCTION First of all, we had given a task to conduct a survey of comparatives analysis of any topics between female and male for our Mathematics final project. Nowadays, females have the ability to earn more than males on average and males could be spent more than females as well. To compare the spending habits of male and female, we had conducted a research study to observe the monthly expenses of college students. Majority of college students are between the ages of 18-24. Usually, we are always having stereotypes that females would spend more than males according to the basic needs of females. It is no doubt that females often spent their money on cosmetics products in order to attract the attention of males especially at the young age. In the other hand, females may also spend money for extra stuff such as sanitary pad, losen and etc which are not necessary for male. In fact, males may also spent on those cosmetics products and skin protection products as they are also having the same problems what females have in this century. So we can’t admit that males spent less than female with the comparison of the daily goods of both genders bought. For the saving habits and financial satisfaction of males and females, males are better savers than females based on the old stereotype. Males always feel less uncomfortable about their current financial status and more optimistic about the future. But when it comes to shopping, males like to get in, get what they need and get out fast. Males are more willing to pay a little more to speed the process then they are to spend time hunting down bargain which are different in females. So there are a lot of different spending habits between the males and females students within the college. In conclusion, we want to investigate the dissimilar way of monthly expenses for male and female in college through the survey. 3
  4. 4. OBJECTIVE The survey’s primary objective is to identify the monthly expenses of boys and girls in college. Through the survey, it allows us to collect and organize statistical data we need to complete our survey’s report. During the calculating of the data, it enables us to apply the knowledge gained to analyse statistical data and draw conclusion from data. Besides, we may able to conduct a simple survey properly to ensure the participant understanding the purpose of the survey. It also improves our communication to the participant for better understanding. Lastly, it enhances teamwork ability and leadership while conducting the survey and completing our survey’s report. 4
  5. 5. METHODOLOGY Data for this report were gathered from 9 January 2014 - 24 January 2014. A questionnaire survey was carried out from 16 January 2014 - 24 January 2014. The questionnaires were distributed to a total of 200 students, which consisting of 100 male students and 100 female students. 50 of each male and female students were having the online questionnaires while the other 50 of each male and female students do the normal questionnaires, both questionnaires have the same questions. The questionnaires were distributed all around Taylor's University Lakeside Campus, for example: Block D, Block E, Corridor, In front of library, in front of Grand Hall, and also Student Life Centre. These questionnaires were distributed equally to get the correct amount of data that is needed. After collecting all the questionnaires we separate the questionnaires into male and female and by that we created tables and diagrams to show the data based on every question and sex, we also calculated the mean for each question and sex. The formula that is most frequently use is mean formula which is : . After we analysis the data, we conclude that the total of money spend is female spend more money compare to male in a week and male will have more money left in the end of the month. 5

  33. 33. CONCLUSION In conclusion, the major purpose of our survey is to gather and integrate all the information into a complete table to examine the monthly expense of boys and girls. Through the histogram that shows participants’ (100 boys and 100 girls) main source of income, it tells us that 81% of girls’ main source of income are from their parents, 15.8% of girls’ main source of income are from their salary of the job they are doing or they did, and lastly there are 3.2% of girls’ main source of income are from their gifts. As for the boys, 59% of their main source incomes are from their parents, 38% of their main source incomes are from job salary and lastly 3% of their main resource incomes are from gift. It shows that there are more boys’ main source of income is come from their job comparing to girls. In the other graph, it also shows that there are more boys having part time job to earn money for their daily expenses. As in the histogram, it shown that there are 58% of boys having a part time job but there are only 47.5% of girls having a part time job. So through these histograms, it shows that there are more boys earning money to overcome their daily expenses. Next is study to determine the type of payment that most participants prefer. According to the histograms, it shows that both parties (girls and boys) prefer cash payment the most, debit card payment method will be next and finally is the credit card payment method. To ensure the difference between both parties about this topic, we set each kind of answers by giving it a number. The result was slightly different and it shown that both parties prefer cash payment the most but there are difference between the other two categories. Comparing to debit card and credit card payment method, boys prefer credit card payments but girls prefer debit card payments. After that was to determine which party spends the most money. By calculating the mean of every question that related to spending and comparing the histogram, we found out that boys spend the most. As boys spend a lot of money buying gadget and personal computer accessories. Compare to girls, boys spend RM429.50 per week individually, and girls only spend RM406.44 per week individually. It was RM23.06 difference. Last but not least was the amount of pocket money per month participants think that is enough to cover their daily expenses. Through the data calculations and analysis, we found out that boys need RM404.50 per month individually to cover daily expenses, as girls need RM394.31 per month individually to cover daily expenses. Overall, it shows that boys need more money and spends more money than girls through this survey form. 33
