CS enrollments finally start going up

Please see this article from Ars Technica. There is one sentence that seems to indicate that this includes degrees in "information", but it is not very clear how inclusive it is.

..."The field, however, continues to have trouble attracting a diverse student body, and suffers from some wider problems, most notably a lack of interest in advanced degrees among US citizens and the shrinking availability of jobs within the academic community. Assuming that private-sector jobs dry up due to the economic crisis, then the most favorable aspect of advanced CS degrees—the high employment rate—may be a thing of the past by next year's survey.

Sure doesn't sound inclusive, +small gains for women. Maybe they have some inspiring faculty ? :-(
