Graduates almost exclusively female in health, clinical sciences and in education

Share this article
In 2007, graduates from two fields of study were almost exclusively female, in health and related clinical sciences and in education. With only three exceptions, women increased their share such that they accounted for more than half of graduates in all fields. 

The exceptions were architecture and engineering; mathematics and computer sciences; and personal, protective and transportation services.

These results appear in "Trends in the age of education infrastructure in Canada" which highlight a few of the findings of a recent Statistics Canada report that analyzed trends in the age of education infrastructure over the 1961 to 2008 period for Canada and the provinces. Demographic trends, rates of participation in postsecondary education and population mobility are some of the key factors that influence investment in education infrastructure.

"Trends in University Graduation, 1992 to 2007" reports on changes over time in the characteristics of university graduates in Canada and the provinces.
