A gender comparative study determining the career interests of juniors was performed in the Worcester Public High Schools for the Advisory Committee on the Status of Women. The primary goal was to determine if the results replicated the previous year's findings. The same approximate gender ratios of students by career interests, post-graduation plans, and career concerns were found to repeat. The research team concluded the findings and trends from the previous study by Handler and Hogan (2005) were still present among juniors. It was less clear whether acceptable sophomore data collected with the same survey instrument produced the same result.
