In 2015, women filled 47% of all U.S. jobs, but held only 24% of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) occupations. Similarly, women constitute slightly more than half of college-educated workers, but only account for 25% of college-educated STEM workers (U.S. Dept. of Commerce, 2017). In the Madison MSA, women account for 48.3% of all occupations. In contrast, women comprise just 27.4% of computer and mathematical occupations. When compared to the top 50 metro areas for total computer and mathematical occupations, women as a share of these occupations vary dramatically. The Madison MSA has the 16th highest share of women working in these occupations, placing it above notable metro areas such as Seattle, Portland and Austin. The highest share among the top 50 metro areas is just 35.8% (Louisville/Jefferson County KY-IN).
