Reported is a survey of interest in physics as a field of higher education, kinds of physics being studied, where physics courses are offered, and what physics degree-holders do and want to do. This comprehensive survey is one of a series, with earlier editions appearing in 1962, 1964, and 1966. Most of the information was obtained from members of the American Institute of Physics. Much material in the employment section was drawn from the data bank of the National Register of Scientific and Technical Personnel. Charts and graphs provide information in such areas as: physics education for high school students, undergraduates, graduate students, and foreign students; faculty, salaries, and distribution of physics-degree granting institutions; and employment and professional characteristics of physicists.
