Do female faculty influence female students' educational and labor market attainments?
AbstractThis paper uses data from the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 to analyze whether the percentage of female faculty had an influence on female students' post-undergraduate educational and labor market outcomes. The results show a statistically significant positive association between the percentage of female faculty and the probability that female students would attain an advanced degree. Although the percentage of female faculty had no statistically significant direct effect on labor market earnings, having an advanced degree did have a large, positive impact on earnings.
