Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates gender differences in occupations. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include how men and women are distributed across occupations, which occupations are predominantly female and which are predominantly male, how the occupational distribution of men and women has changed over time, and whether gender discrimination plays a role in the occupational distribution of men and women.
This data collection has been deaccessioned; it is no longer distributed by ICPSR. The data are currently available at Gender and Occupation: A Data-Driven Learning Guide.
