Resumen

The following research work analyzes if gender influences the environmental concern and pro-environmental behaviours of a person in the city of Guayaquil. Additionally, the research seeks to establish if education level and civil status haveany effect for both indicators in men and women. To analyze this, a survey was carried out to a sample 1210 people, who were chosen randomly, thus allowing responses from a variety of locations and settings to be examined. Based on the results of the hypothesis tests, it can be concluded that women in fact showed higher rates of both indicators, demonstrating that in fact gender influence environmental concern and pro-environmental behaviours, then both hypothesis were accepted. Finally, Guayaquil's respondents are aware of the existence of environmental problems, although their concerns do not always translate into responsible behavi or with the environment.
