Report on the Council of Graduate Schools-Graduate Record Examinations Board 1972-73 Survey of Graduate Enrollment Part II.
Altman, Robert A.
The council of Graduate Schools (CGS) and the Graduate Record Examinations Board undertook a survey of graduate enrollment. Survey questionnaires were sent to 303 graduate schools who were members of CGS. Results indicated increasing enrollment is not universal, but is concentrated in the humanities, social sciences, and education, and is distinctly absent in the physical sciences. Female enrollment in graduate study is increasing; however, women still enroll in significantly smaller numbers than do their male counterparts. It was also concluded that it is still impossible to collect meaningful data on the racial composition of graduate schools on a regular basis by means of this type survey. (MJM)
