What is the 'gender difference in behavior pattern' observed during the lockdown of the new Corona?

The global epidemic of the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) that occurred from 2020 to 2021 had a great impact on various fields such as economy, life, and labor.

A study of observing data from 1.2 million mobile phones in a lockdown in the midst of an epidemic confirmed that 'men and women in lockdown have very different behavior patterns.'

The first coronavirus lockdown revealed big behavioral gender differences

A new study on behavioral pattern differences between men and women during lockdown was published by Tobias Reish and colleagues at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna (CSH), an academic institution specializing in complex systems and big data in Austria. Leish and colleagues said the period from February 1st to June 29th, 2020, including the period from March 16th, 2020, when Austria held the lockdown to May 1st, when a rally of 10 or more people was allowed. In response to CSH being granted access to anonymized telecommunications data by a major Austrian Internet service provider, a study was conducted to 'evaluate people's behavior data' during the same period. We categorized male and female behavior patterns for a dataset of 1.2 million people, which is 15% of Austria's population.

As a result, it was common that both men and women had a dramatic increase in mobile phone call time immediately after the blockage was imposed, but it was found that gender was greatly involved in the increase in call time. I did. According to Leish et al., The call time between women and women increased by 140% before and after the lockdown, while the call time between men and women increased by 100%, and calls between women and men increased by 100%. The time increased by 80%, and the talk time from male to male increased by only 66%.

In addition, the behavioral patterns obtained from the number of people in a specific area indicated by telecommunications data also clearly showed the difference between men and women. According to Leish et al., Both men and women shared the fact that the number of people going out after the lockdown decreased, but it was shown that women have a higher rate of decrease in the number of people going out and refrain from going out for a long period of time. rice field.

Leish et al. 'Explain the difference in employment between men and women, as gender differences in outings tend to close on weekends, and it has been confirmed that men commute more often and commute longer due to work. I think it's the main factor. '

CSH director Stephen Turner, who was involved in the study, reiterated that telecommunications data provides quick and low-cost social insights without compromising individual anonymity. 'We can see people's behavior where they are now, without having to do a large survey of thousands of people,' he said.
