WOMEN in Burton and South Derbyshire save almost twice as much as men, according to new research.
A study carried out by Halifax UK, showed that women in East Staffordshire were able to save 44 per cent of their earnings in 2012 while men saved only 27 per cent.
Women in South Derbyshire and North West Leicestershire were able to save even more, saving 47 per cent of their earnings, while men in the region still saved only 27 per cent.
The study also showed woman held more savings in total than men.
South Derbyshire and North West Leicestershire were the only regions outside southern England where people saved more than the national average.
Richard Fearon, head of Halifax savings, said: “Women are not only out-saving men relative to their annual earnings, but they also have more savings in total.”
