National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Data on the characteristics of scientists and engineers employed by approximately 2,190 higher education institutions and from 19 university-administered federally-funded research and development institutions are presented. These data, derived from the National Science Foundation's 1983 Survey of Scientific and Engineering Personnel Employed at Universities and Colleges are presented in 81 tables under these headings: (1) trends; (2) sex; (3) institutional control and full-time equivalents; (4) institutional rankings; (5) the top 100 doctorate-granting institutions; (6) institutional rankings by sex and type of employment; (7) geographic distribution; (8) type of institution; (9) historically black colleges; and (10) institutional categories. Data within these categories are broken down, when applicable, by sex, science and engineering field, full-time and part-time employment equivalent, status, and other variables. Sixteen summary tables are also presented, providing data by type of public or private doctorate-, master's-, or bachelor's-granting institution for the various science and engineering fields. A sample questionnaire, instructions, and related materials are appended. (JN)
