The Underrepresentation of Women in Economics: A Study of Undergraduate Economics Students.
Dynan, Karen E.; Rouse, Cecilia Elena
Journal of Economic Education, v28 n4 p350-68 Fall 1997
Analyzes enrollment and other statistical data from Harvard University toward discussing the question of why women are less likely than men to major in economics. Discovers little evidence to suggest that the dichotomy is dependent on mathematics aptitude. Alternative explanations include a lack of interest and socialization. (MJP)
