This report provides a set of time-series data on the participation of women in the Ontario (Canada) university system from 1986-87 to 1995-96. It includes data on: (1) student applications, noting that the number of applicants has increased from 49.8 percent in 1986 to 53.3 percent in 1995; (2) student enrollment and participation, noting that the proportion of women participating full-time in 1996 (53.7 percent) increased substantially over comparable figures for 1987 (49.3 percent) and 1972 (36.4 percent); (3) degrees awarded, noting that virtually all of Ontario universities awarded more than half of their bachelor and first-professional degrees to women; (4) full-time faculty, noting that the number of female faculty increased by 36.3 percent in the past decade; (5) faculty-student comparisons, noting that in every field and at every level, the percentage of women faculty is substantially less than the percentage of students who are female; (6) full-time nonacademic staff, noting that the number of women in upper- and middle-level management, professional, and semiprofessional positions has increased. Two appendixes provide notes to the data tables and a list of related reports. (MDM)
