This interactive chart shows researcher demographics (gender, ethnicity, and age) by subject area for each of the four Quality Evaluation rounds (2003. 2006, 2012 and 2018).

Things to know when reading this chart:

  • Ages of researchers are as of 1 July of the Quality Evaluation year. Ages are  grouped into ranges.
  • In the first three Quality Evaluation rounds, there were three categories for gender – men, women and unknown. In the 2018 Quality Evaluation, the three categories were men, women and other. For consistency across rounds we have maintained the unknown category for this chart.
