Title IX and the Allocation of Resources to Women's and Men's Sports
AbstractAs a result of Title IX, there has been a large increase in participation of women in college sports, while men's participation has remained roughly constant. We model the resource allocation decision across sports before and after Title IX was imposed. If the number of sports is held constant, the model predicts an increase in resources devoted to women's sports, matched by an equal decrease in resources devoted to men's sports. Since this is counterfactual, we allow the number of sports to vary. The resulting model is able to replicate the empirically observed response to Title IX. Copyright 2012, Oxford University Press.
