要約

Long-standing methods to depict the participation levels of underrepresented students in science remain incomplete. To remedy this, our study examines the gender and race segregation of math, science, and engineering fields in U.S. universities. We employ the index of dissimilarity to examine racial and gender segregation within science fields. We also examine representation at institutions of varying levels of selectivity. By considering multiple dimensions of participation, our findings uncover a greater level of complexity in the representation of women and minorities in science fields.
