ERIC Database

ERIC is "the world's largest source of education information, with nearly 1 million abstracts of documents and journal articles on education research and practice." Some of these papers provide useful sociological information on the relationship between education and gender. Abstracts of the papers are free; the site also explains how to obtain copies of the papers, many at low cost.


Gender statistics on various social issues can be called up by state or compared across states. This site was created for journalists but provides reliable data for sociological analysis.
