This is exactly what I was looking for – thanks Ryan. It seems that the time gap while at different points in their curves is only slightly closing. This evidence does lead to the conclusion that men might have more factors in their favor than do women.
What is the gap doing in terms of percentage or proportion?
An interesting thought is where do transgender individuals fall in this. Here we have the mental aspects of one gender and the physical aspects of the other. Does this mitigate some of the disadvantages or advantages?
I agree that it might be more useful to look at % difference (or % improvement difference) than simply in terms of raw time difference.
