An interesting read.
I had no plans to write this post. That is because when I got the National Science Foundation data on archaeology grants it did not come with gender or sex of PIs. However, yesterday when I was looking at the top PIs, in terms of number of grants and amounts, for NSF grants to archaeology projects I noticed a significant disparity in the number of men and women receiving grants. Women barely appear in the top grant receivers.
So last night, I took a sample of years and looked at the number of male and female PIs receiving NSF grants for archaeology projects. I looked at the years 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, and 2013. The results were:
|Count Men||Count Women||Men Total Amount||Women Total Amount|
