abstract={This study investigates the three demographic factors gender, geographical origin
and parents educational level among self-selected students in mathematical tracks in Swedish
Upper Secondary School (n=147). Comparisons are made, through statistical tests of
significance, with corresponding student distributions on the closely related Natural Science
program (n = 1528). Data is obtained from Statistics Sweden. Results confirm that females
are under-represented in mathematical tracks (p<0,01) and that parents of students in
mathematical tracks have higher educational level than parents of students in the comparison
group (p<0,05). Results do not show that students with foreign background are underrepresented
in mathematical tracks, but raise questions about under-representation of Swedish
students. Possible implications of these findings for these and similar programs are discussed.},
