This technical report describes the participation of women in computing in more than 30 countries, by focussing on participation at undergraduate level. A brief discussion covers how societal and cultural factors may affect women's participation. Statistics from many different sources are presented for comparison.

In the appendices, the approach to data collection is described and statistics for women in computing and mathematics are presented.
