New Yorker parity report - November 28, 2011

Just as I predicted, the parity score is down this week, from the unusual closing-in-on-parity score of 37.39% - this week it's back to 28.57%.

The New Yorker Parity Report
A regular report on the gender parity - or lack thereof - of the current issue of The New Yorker based on table of contents by-lines
Includes fiction, non-fiction, poems. Does not include illustrations.

A score of 50% means that half of all writers in the issue are female.
A score of greater than 50% would mean more female than male writers. This never happens.

Parity change from previous week: -9.35%
