Survey of First-Year Graduate and Postdoctoral Enrollment in Science and Engineering.
Blandford, Barbara; Dutton, Diane
This survey of the Higher Education Panel (HEP) of the American Council on Education, conducted in July 1971, concerned first-year graduate enrollment and postdoctoral enrollment in science and engineering for the academic year 1970-71 and expected enrollments for 1971-72. Each institution was asked, first, to indicate new applications received through July 5, 1970 and actual first-year graduate and postdoctoral enrollment for that year and, then, to estimate enrollments for 1971, indicating the number of new applications received as of July 5, 1971. This information was requested for the following fields: physical sciences, basic medical sciences, other life sciences, psychology, other social sciences, engineering, and mathematical sciences. In addition, each institution was asked to specify changes in admissions policies since 1968 that may have affected the number or kinds of new science or engineering graduate and postdoctoral students in 1971. The survey was mailed to 86 institutions granting advanced degrees in science or engineering, and 78 of the returned questionnaires represent the basis for the present report. (Author/HS)
