Abstract: Mathematical skills act as an important feature to explain some aspects of social inclusion and economic inequality. In this perspective the literature shows an increasing attention to the relationship between the mathematical skills and gender inequality in education and labor marker experience. Based on these arguments, the paper analyses the main factors behind the differences in test scores on mathematics subjects between male and female 15 years old students, performing the Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition method (Blinder, 1973) on the data from the OECD PISA 2018 survey.
