Written by Moon Duchin
Moon Duchin has put together an informal collection of data on women alumnae of the University of Chicago Mathematics Department. The idea was to include all those at any level (undergraduate, graduate, and faculty) who went on at least one level further in academic mathematics after leaving Chicago. The main intent was to track placement patterns. The data contains some very interesting and unexpected trends, which are discussed here.
Thanks to Moon, herself a U of Chicago alumna and currently a postdoc at UC Davis, for allowing us to post this material publicly for the first time.
