Gender

International Women’s Day: gender statistics
Prompted by International Women’s Day I have been looking back at my studies of gender statistics:
.(1) Malala Yousafzay, Maryam Mirzakhani and Judit Polgar*;
.(2) popular discussion of gender lacks conceptual sophistication and displays gender exceptionalism;
.(3) gender and educational performance: there is an interesting comparison between pre-specialisation school performance and post-specialisation school performance (GCSE v A level in the UK);
.(4) gender and educational performance: there is an interesting comparison between countries, continents and cultures worldwide in terms of literacy;
.(5) gender and prison propensity: why are men much more likely to go to prison?
.(6) ethnicity and sex grooming.
In general an important distinction is between differences within groups and differences between groups …
… there are also effects due to the tails of distributions.
