Abstract

Data from the HEGIS database were used to analyze gender inequality among bachelor's degree recipients. Women continue to receive their degrees from institutions that fall below the average on several criteria. However, the gender differences are small and are accounted for by women's relative absence from selective engineering programs and disproportionate representation among part-time students, who are clustered in institutions with below-average status.
