Mickelson, Susan, Comp.
In 1971, the Council for University Women's Progress first prepared tables which compared all Ph.D's attained by women to those attained by men in the same fields. This document brings this data up to date and supplements it with tables on master's and bachelor's degrees, as well as first professional degrees. The tables show data such as the proportion of bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees earned by women by major field of study and selected subfield; the proportion of first professional degrees earned by women; bachelor's, master's and doctorates earned by women by major field and as a percentage of all degrees earned by women for the periods 1960-61 and 1971-72. These data have supplied some evidence that women's career interests are changing. (JMF)
