Education and Training

It is difficult to find research-based information on the education and training experiences of girls and women. In this section, we point you toward the credible information that we have found. We invite you to inform us about other available sources of gender-specific research on education. You will see that the bulk of statistical findings on the education of US women and girls comes from two main sources: the US Census and the National Center for Educational Statistics. Most other projects will utilize the data from these main sources. Most of the information found from these sources is not disaggregated by gender.
