Gender Inequalities in Archaeology plays out in NSF funding

An interesting read.

Doug's Archaeology

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
1985 24 4  $6,197,712.73  $1,178,342.40
1990 52 15  $5,265,291.62  $1,749,581.93
1995 76 23  $6,954,844.11  $5,121,814.92
2000 77 27  $9,850,983.12  $3,302,724.19
2005
