Women in Science and Technology: The Institutional Ecology Approach. Volume II: Statistical Annex: Sex Differentiation of Grade 12 Enrollments and of Higher Education Disciplines.
Byrne, Eileen M.
This volume is to be used in conjunction with volume I (Final Research Report) of the Women in Science and Technology in Australia (WISTA) research project. This document contains the main statistical tables of grade 12 and higher education enrollments used as the basis for the statistical element of the WISTA research report. The document is divided into two sections. The first section contains diagrams of undergraduate enrollments in 1985 at 10 universities in Australia. This section also contains diagrams of undergraduate enrollment rates during that same year in physics, mathematics, chemistry, biochemistry, computer science, microbiology, biotechnology, geology, minerals, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and chemical engineering. The second section is made up of statistical tables and includes 4 tables on institutional sex balance, 5 tables by level of course, 11 by separate disciplines and level of course, 6 by undergraduate disciplines showing year groups and honors where available, 10 tables showing those graduating in 1985 by discipline and level, and 5 tables of institutional staff profiles. The last part of the second section gives secondary school statistics including mathematics in grade 12, and separate statistics for 8 states and territories. The data were collected from a survey of 10 higher education institutions. This statistical volume relates to the report objective of producing a compilation of student and staff statistics, representing a significant sample of Australian higher education, in such a way as to answer detailed, diagnostic questions about female enrollments in different disciplines and subdisciplines and at different levels.
