Distribution of Documents According to Author Gender

“Document Stats -- What is Going on in the IETF?”




Documents come from these genders, 3 different genders in total.

  • 7633 documents (76.61%) have male authors.
  • 2808 documents (28.18%) have unknown authors.
  • 1029 documents (10.33%) have female authors.

Wondering why the total is greater than 100%? Documents with multiple authors may be counted multiple times, if the authors have different gender. Genders are determined by knowing some individuals, the rest are guessed by testing the first name via genderchecker.
