description: ► We conduct two risk experiments with the matrilineal Mosuo and the patriarchal Yi. ► Women are more risk averse than men at both tasks within both the Mosuo and the Yi. ► The gender gap on risk attitude is smaller in the Mosuo. ► Socio-economic factors such as family size also significantly affect risk attitudes. We conduct experiments on two different risk tasks with subjects from two neighboring ethnic groups, the matrilineal Mosuo and the patriarchal Yi in China. Women are more risk averse than men at both tasks within both ethnic groups. However, the gender gap is smaller in the Mosuo. Regressions show that socio-economic factors such as family size, family head, education, age, and income also have significant effects on subject's risk choices.

abstract

► We conduct two risk experiments with the matrilineal Mosuo and the patriarchal Yi. ► Women are more risk averse than men at both tasks within both the Mosuo and the Yi. ► The gender gap on risk attitude is smaller in the Mosuo. ► Socio-economic factors such as family size also significantly affect risk attitudes.

We conduct experiments on two different risk tasks with subjects from two neighboring ethnic groups, the matrilineal Mosuo and the patriarchal Yi in China. Women are more risk averse than men at both tasks within both ethnic groups. However, the gender gap is smaller in the Mosuo. Regressions show that socio-economic factors such as family size, family head, education, age, and income also have significant effects on subject's risk choices.
