Carolyn Dicey Jennings, a professional data guru who we should all be deeply grateful to, gives us the facts.  She also notes that some of the programs with the most women and non-white PhDs have recently been suggested as possibly meriting closure.  For more details, do go to her post.

Do feel free to comment either on Carolyn’s post or here.  But do observe the rules of the relevant venues.
