GGG & The Airman Directory – a making-of

Tools, methodology and data used to produce the article ‘GenderGapGrader: Airline Pilots‘:

We’re disclosing the data used in the study. We’ve opened GendRE API which extracts gender from names. To make it usable by everyone, we’ve built an extension for RapidMiner, a leading open source data mining and predictive analytics software.

So you can run your own gender gap analysis, where and when it matters to you!
