IETF Statistics

Comparison of Gender over the Years (Normalized)

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




This tracks publication of RFCs with authors with a given gender. Gender is based on the authors first name. Genders are determined by knowing some individuals, the rest are guessed by testing the first name via genderchecker. The scale is logarithmic, normalized to 100% representing all documents, and data has been smoothed using an exponential moving average with alpha = 0.40. The last year (2018) has been adjusted assuming the same publication rates as has happened during first part of the year (now 39.52 % complete).
