Doctoral Students and University Teaching Staff - ARCHIVED

Stats in brief: 81-599-X2011006


This fact sheet presents a brief overview of the number of students who enroll in and complete doctoral programs at Canadian universities, focusing on the female-male patterns and the changes in those patterns over time. As many of the individuals who earn doctorates move into teaching positions at universities, it also looks at the continued progress of women and their current representation among university faculty. As some fields of study - or fields of instruction - may be either male- or female-dominated, differences between the sexes are also considered by discipline.
