Working Women on Indian TV
Tallying the number of fictional female characters who work on Indian television evening soaps. We find that 36.6% of the female characters of working age work. The proportion varies considerably across shows, spanning 0 and 1. The standard deviation is .30.
The data were collected between September and November, 2015. For now, we have data on 172 characters covering 20 shows. If you see an inconsistency in the data, or have a suggestion, or some data that you would like to contribute to the project, please create a pull request.
