Type of resource

Reports available here
Each year the German Federal Statistical Office (Statistisches Bundesamt) releases a report on the numbers surrounding employment at German institutions of higher education. Half of the report is typically devoted to a report on female employment, with detailed tables for each federal state.
In 2018, the percentage of female academic staff at German institutions of higher education was 39%, which is roughly the same as it was the previous year. The percentage of women holding professorships was 25%. When it comes to non-academic positions at universities (in areas like administration, libraries, and technical services), women held 70% of positions. There is clearly still a lot of work to be done!
