Christian Poulsen Swedish Questionnaire on working conditions ______________________________________________________________________________ Introduction Under the work with FGII, the statistical profile of women’s situation among staff in European Universities, one of the major conclusions was the lack of public available statistics on working conditions for superior staff in higher education institutions. As Women in European Universities is both a training and a research network the undertaking of a enquiry among full professors would both give the participants training and provide some of the missing information on working conditions. The current paper is a first result of these efforts. In the process of working with FGI, the literature review of higher education and gender in the respective countries, some hypothesis showed interesting for further exploration. A very popular hypothesis among scholars who treat the issue of the low representation of women among full professors is that women’s representation among full professors is a result of the “leaking pipe line” that combining family and work means for women’s careers. By constructing some indicators it can be tested whether having children are considered a hinder for a university career for women. Nevertheless the current paper also constructs an alternative explanation to this rather over rated explanation. As explained in Poulsen and Martín (2003) the difficult task of combining family and work cannot alone explain the low percentage of women among full professors in either of the participating countries. We have thus developed the hypothesis that the perception of prestige can influence the careers of academics and this paper sets out to give a preliminary understanding of this possible relationship. Some of the questions related to prestige are only present in the Swedish version of the questionnaire. This is explained by the special interest I have in prestige and the perception of it and the extra material will be fully explored in my dissertation 1 . The outline of this paper is very simple: The results of the questionnaire will be presented by a simple count from each question. Whenever relevant the results will also be split in a female and male section of answers. At the end a few simple hypothesis will be tested by regression analysis. 1 See Poulsen, forthcoming 3
