Graph of Doctoral Degrees in Sociology by Gender Since 1966

Summary:

The number of women receiving PhDs in sociology has grown steadily since 1966. In contrast, the number of degrees awarded to men has declined steadily after a growth spurt from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s. This gap, however, narrows after 2007 when the number of PhD recipients declined overall.
