Gender Asset and Wealth Gaps

Evidence from Karnataka

The results presented are based on the Karnataka Household Asset Survey, 2010-11 which was collected by researchers at the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore. This paper is from a larger research study, the Gender Asset Gap Project, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs under their MDG3 Fund for gender equality. The analysis was also partially supported by a grant from the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation, Government of India. The authors would like to thank the participants of a dissemination workshop (August 2011) at IIMB, where preliminary results were presented.
