The data was presented in an organized manner using colored graphs and charts. Several variables impacting the gender gaps were examined. However, the data was collected in 2004 and is seven years old now which is outdated. A follow up report is needed by the author or the reader will have to find more updated statistics from another source in order to supplement the findings within this report.

Technical Remarks:

The graphs were a little hard for me to read due to the type and size of the font used.
