Sex-Related Differences in High School Science and Mathematics Enrollments: Do They Give Males a Critical Headstart Toward Science- and Math-Related Careers?
Ridley, Dennis R.; Novak, Joseph D.
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v29 n4 p308-18 Dec 1983

Reexamination examination of data on gender differences in rate of decline in mathematics enrollments suggested differences were too small to account for large gender differences in postsecondary careers.
