National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
Reported are results of a survey and a forecast of the number of science doctorates in the United States by the year 1980, of 350,000. The magnitude was determined through examination of the 1968 group, estimates of death and retirement attrition, projections of emigration and immigration patterns, and projections of doctorates produced between 1968 and 1980. Appendices include results of the survey according to: (1) 1968 utilization of Ph.D. Personnel in Science and Engineering; (2) Projected Availability of Science and Engineering Doctorates; (3) Projected 1980 Utilization of Ph.D. Scientists and Engineers; and (4) Possible Modifications of Utilization Patterns.
