Demographic Data

Documenting institutional and departmental demographics is necessary to measure progress toward creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment. We are publishing existing demographic data collected by the Yale Office of Institutional Research (OIR) to help attain the goals stated by Yale’s Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI). Although these data are imperfect (e.g., gender is collected from within a binary framework, racial categories are overly broad, there are no data on country of origin, socio-economic status, disability status, nor religion), alternative approaches, such as departmental surveys, would likely yield incomplete data. Therefore, we publish this data as a starting point, knowing that it does not account for many of the dimensions of diversity that the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences values.
