MIT Major Distributions by Dorm

This chart was made by looking up 300 common last names on the MIT Directory and logging down results of each person with that last name. Due to the fact that various ethnicities have various distributions of last names, there may be a potential bias in distribution if major choice is not significantly independent of ethnicity. Looking through data, it doesn’t seem to be dependent.

Asterisked (*) dorms indicate a sample size of less than 40, and thus are possibly not good representations.
