New Yorker Parity Report - January 30, 2012

Gender parity status is up three points to 25% - one quarter of all the New Yorker by-lines are female in this issue, which is pretty much the New Yorker standard - I've been keeping track since November 14 and the average gender parity score so far is 26%.

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: +3%
