Statistical digests

The Diversity Team publish statistical digests of the profile of academic staff in university physics departments in the UK, with data drawn from HESA.

The digests will be of interest to all relevant staff in university physics cost centres, particularly heads of departments and those staff members who are preparing Juno or Athena SWAN applications for their department.

It will enable staff to:

  • understand the profiles of staff in university physics cost centres
  • compare the gender and diversity profile of their own cost centres with that of other university physics cost centres
  • gain an insight into the changes in the gender profile of university physics cost centres over the last decade

 The Statistical Digest 2007 provides a concise overview of the gender profile of university physics cost centres in 2005/06

The 2010 edition presents data for academic staff in 2007/08 and provides an overview of the diversity profile in terms of gender, nationality, ethnicity, age, disability and sexual orientation

The digests are drawn from wide ranging statistics gathered by the diversity team to understand the diversity profile of the physics community. 

If you are interested in facets of the community that are not covered by the digests, we welcome individual requests for information. Please get in touch to discuss how we can help.
