Summary

Male and female academics have very different residence patterns. Women are concentrated in our largest urban centers; also, wherever they reside, women are less likely than men to switch communities when changing institutions. We indicate that much of this sex difference in location preference and movement pattern is attributable to the constraints under which married academic women must manage their careers; in particular, within the requirements of a dual-career household. Finally, we provide tentative evidence in support of the contention that the status difference between men and women in academia is attributable, in part, to the geographic limitations on the locations of married women, as these prevent making strategic job changes to advance career prospects.
