According to a survey, girls receive significantly less pocket money than boys.

Between the ages of 4 and 13, they receive an average of 13.76 euros per month - and thus 11 percent less than boys, according to a representative Forsa study.

For the “Kids Media Compass” of the Burda subsidiary Blue Ocean Entertainment AG, 2515 children and young people between the ages of 4 and 13 were surveyed.

The results were published on Monday by the publishing house for children's magazines in Stuttgart.

According to the study results, the difference between the sexes extends through childhood: This applies to the age group of 4 to 6 year olds, in which only about every fifth child receives pocket money.

And between the ages of 11 and 13, when around nine out of ten children have pocket money, girls have less of their own money.

More boys without pocket money

In general, around 6 out of 10 children between the ages of 4 and 13 in Germany receive pocket money.

According to the survey, it is an average of 14.56 euros per month.

When it comes to the question "Pocket money yes or no?", The girls are slightly better off than the boys: While 38 percent of the boys do not get their own money, it is 36 percent for the girls.
