This report graphically summarizes the findings of a longitudinal study of 1961 college graduates. The study is based on a probability sample of 41,000 college seniors polled in 135 colleges and universities in 1961. Annual follow-up surveys were conducted in 1962, 1963, and 1964. This report presents information on: (1) the graduate study expectations of women who graduated in 1961 in terms of immediate or later plans, marital status, academic performance, and socioeconomic status; (2) obstacles to graduate study, including reasons for not going to graduate school, and reasons women do not become physicians; (3) leverage factor affecting graduate study, such as measures and conditions considered helpful for increasing the number of women in science and medicine; (4) patterns of graduate enrollment, in terms of expectations versus enrollment, women and graduate enrollment, marital status, academic performance, women's highest degree expectation, and women's choice of career activities; (5) women enrollment, degree expectations, academic performance, training, and career choice in health and science fields; and (6) stipends for women in graduate school, and in the health and science fields, and the effect of financial support on graduate enrollment of women in the health and science fields.
