I can’t be more specific than this because the study doesn’t give numbers and I’m trying to eyeball confidence intervals on graphs.women and whether one gender gets a higher acceptance rate than the other.This is a little harder than it sounds – people on Git Hub use nicks that don’t always give gender cues – but the researchers wrote a program to automatically link contributor emails to Google Plus pages so they could figure out users’ genders.The study itself say that women do worse than men when gender is revealed, so since the researchers presumably have access to their real numbers data, that might mean the confidence intervals don’t overlap.
From eyeballing the graph, it looks like the difference is 1% – ie, men get their requests approved 64% of the time, and women 63% of the time.
Because Git Hub is big and their study is automated, they manage to get a really nice sample size – about 2.5 million pull requests by men and 150,000 by women. ) requests accepted than men for all of the top ten programming languages.
