In 2017, The United States Department of Labor reported that women accounted for 42.2 percent of full-time wage salary workers in life, physical, and social science occupations while only 25.2 percent worked in computer and mathematical fields. Similarly, it was reported that, in architecture and engineering occupations, only 14 percent of full-time wage and salary workers were women.
