In my last blog post, I examined a multi-year controlled set of full-time faculty gender data for 401 schools in the United States. This time, let’s narrow our focus to a snapshot of the most recent survey data and take a look at full-time faculty gender by world region for a set of 597 schools that participated in the 2015–16 Salary Survey. Two of the regional areas, Oceania and Africa, were excluded from this set due to insufficient data for the current survey year. For each of the other regions listed, the number of schools that provided valid data on gender is listed in the chart. Figure 1 provides an overview of the full-time faculty data discussed in more detail below.
