Reviews of Data on Science Resources, No. 32. Employment Patterns of Recent Entrants Into Science and Engineering.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
This report presents selected demographic and employment characteristics of recent bachelor's- and master's-degree recipients in science and engineering (S/E). The findings reported are based upon the results of a survey of the 1973-74 and 1974-75 graduating classes conducted in 1976. Surveys of new entrants to science and engineering constitute one of the elements used by the Foundation in delineating the total S/E population in the United States. Information on scientists and engineers who were in the S/E labor force at the time of the 1970 Decennial Census is provided by Surveys of Experienced Scientists and Engineers; characteristics of doctoral scientists and engineers are obtained by surveys of a sample selected from the Doctoral Roster; and the New Entrants Surveys furnish information on those who have entered the S/E labor force since 1970.
