Neuroscience base rates

Aggregated demographic data for Neuroscience 2017 registrants provided by the Society for Neuroscience. Calculations and analysis are ours:

Faculty gender ratio (full, associate and assistant professors): 39%
Trainee gender ratio (postdocs and graduate students): 49%
Overall gender ratio (faculty and trainees): 45%

20,408 out of 29,912 (~68%) attendees indicated gender

Gender ratio in neuroscience departments as of August 2015 unless mentioned otherwise:

Columbia 23F:80M (22%)
Harvard 32F:104M (24%)
Johns Hopkins 27F:78M (26%)
MIT 16F:39M (29%)
NYU 4F:19M (17%)
Princeton 7F:18M (28%) [15 Nov 2016]
