April 13, 2011
From February 1 to March 29, 2011, the Sloan Network poll question asked our users, "For you and those you know, has the recession more negatively affected men’s employment (mancession) compared to women?" Of the 63 responders, 35 (57%) replied "yes," 14 (25%) replied "no," and 11 (18%) indicated that they "didn't know." Ironically, these results follow Heather Boushey's proclamation that the "mancession" is over in Slate Magazine.
