Abstract

This report, the third in a series of six prepared as part of the Critical Path Analysis project, focuses on student performance in higher education. The paper identifies areas where institutional or social barriers appear to have differential effects by gender or ethnicity on pursuit of a science or engineering career. The authors do so by developing a new panel database containing information by gender, ethnicity, and field of study on degrees granted, fall enrollments, and faculty at all four-year colleges and universities and at top research universities in California, Massachusetts, and New York.
