This report appears to provide evidence of the need to construct "gender filters" for all sociological question-based interviewing, especially when carried out in strongly patriarchal (e.g. Latino or Muslim) societies.This paper incorporates survey research in Nicaragua amongst clients of micro-finance organisations and non-clients which provided startlingly differentiated response patterns to questions by gender. Suggest clear evidence of differential responses between:
single male and female household heads
male and female partners of couple-headed households
men and women questioned by female interviewers
men and women interviewed by male interviewers.
Other findings related to the clear response differentiation by gender which was apparent in reported household structure and responsibility, with dramatic differences in, for instance reported land ownership by men and women.
