Raw Data

RAW DATA….I don’t really have any good reason for posting this, but maybe somebody else will find something interesting to say about it. It’s data from this year’s A-level tests for high school seniors in Britain, and it shows the popularity of the various tests among boys and girls. Not how well they did, merely whether they chose to take the test at all. Computing was the most male-centric test and Performing/ Expressive Arts was the most female-centric.

Make of it what you will. The weekend beckons.

UPDATE: Spreadsheet data re-sorted to put women on top, where they belong.
