Gender and Stratification of Colleges.
Jacobs, Jerry A.
Journal of Higher Education, v70 n2 p161-87 Mar-Apr 1999
Data from a national higher-education database were used to analyze gender inequality among bachelor's-degree recipients. Women continue to receive degrees from institutions that fall below average on several criteria. However, gender differences are small and accounted for by women's relative absence from selective engineering programs and disproportionate representation among part-time students, clustered in institutions of below-average status.
