Population Characteristics – Gender

Table 5 and the associated chart show that the gender ratio in the study area is notably higher than the rest of the City and the US population as a whole.  The ratio with ½ mile of the 15th Street and Congress Street intersection shows an even higher skew of male residents.  This characteristic is attributable to the demographics of the RPI student population.  According to the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute – Common Data Set 2006-2007 (www.rpi.edu/about/cds/index.html), the population of full-time students seeking undergraduate and graduate degrees is 6,290, of which 4,655 are male (74%) and 1,635 are female (26%).
