The gender and race-ethnicity of faculty in top social science research departments

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Beutel, Ann, and D.J. Nelson. 2006. "The gender and race-ethnicity of faculty in top social science research departments." Social Science Journal, 43(1): 111-125.

This paper provides a recent profile of the gender and race-ethnicity of faculty in top research departments of economics, political science, and sociology. Most faculty are male, although there appear to be critical masses of women in political science and sociology. Blacks and Hispanics are underrepresented among faculty relative to their shares of the population. Within each racial-ethnic group examined, there are more male than female faculty members, with a smaller gender gap for Blacks than for other racial-ethnic groups. In general, the higher the rank, the greater the proportion of males than females, especially for Whites and Asians.
