WiCS has gathered historical and current statistics about the representation of women and other underrepresented gender identities in computer science, in order to understand the current status of women+* in computing and to identify trends. 

Everyone is always interested in the current statistics. But we encourage you to look also at the historical data, which suggests that the “natural” ratio of women+ in computing ought to be much higher than it currently is. And we encourage you to look at the worldwide data, which suggests that the underrepresentation of women+ in computing in North America might be due to cultural issues rather than to innate aptitudes or interests of women+.

*In the statistics below, "women+" students refer to students who have self-declared their gender to be either “Woman/Female” or “Another Gender Identity”
