The visualization above shows the self-reported gender distribution for a selected course (left, defaulting to all HarvardX enrollees) and all HarvardX enrollees (right).

  • Mouse-pointing (or tapping) at a diagram sector or legend item will reveal the counts the calculation is based on.
  • Checking/unchecking the "only male/female" box will remove Other and Missing categories from the diagram and re-compute the composition just based on the numbers of male and female enrollees.
  • Selecting an item from the drop-down menu will bring up information on the selected offering.
  • A technical document that describes data collection procedures, known limitations, and links to source code and data is available here.
