要約

This paper summarizes our analysis of data from the annual survey of mathematical science departments by the American Mathematical Society (AMS). First, we examine how gender proportions of faculty and undergraduate majors in the mathematical sciences vary across institutional groups. These groups are defined by the AMS according to type of degree offered, highest degree offered, and selectivity. Second, we investigate how these proportions have changed over time using AMS data from the past decade. Finally, we explore the relationship between the proportion of women faculty and women majors across institutional types as a test of the role model hypothesis, which posits that women faculty members have a positive effect on the attraction and retention of women mathematics students.
