Spring Self-Reported Entry Level Hiring Report 2014 - Men/Women over Time
Orin asked in the comments below about the split between male and female hires over time. Based on a super-quick count of what is, disturbingly, nine years of spreadsheets that I happen to have, here's what I found. I've left out the data labels because I am even less sure than usual of the exactness of the numbers, but they're roughly right as reflections of self-reported hiring each spring (first Solum's reports, then mine). And as always, 2010 is left out due to missing data for that year.
For what it's worth, I consider last year and this year to represent essentially equal splits of men and and women--last year it was 54% men, this year it was 49% men, both in very small pools.
Edited 5/4/14, 5/6/14 to add two hires and reclassify one person.
does anyone have handy the gender breakdown of all current tenured/TT faculty? i'm curious too whether it's roughly consistent across schools, or whether some schools have parity and other schools are much more lopsided and drag down the average.
