As the second report on the postcensal survey, educational and training backgrounds of scientific and engineering manpower are analyzed on the basis of questionnaire responses from individuals covering 45 professional and technical occupations and college-graduate groups in the 1960 Decennial Census of Population. A total of 40 tables and 5 charts is presented with social and demographic characteristics analyzed. The report is concerned with the following topics: effects of age, sex, and social and occupational origins in determining educational attainment; relationships between attendance of parochial, private, and public elementary and high schools on subsequent education; dependence of school curricula and class sizes on education attainment; analyses of fields of study for higher degree and for each degree received; financial supports of undergraduate and graduate studies; evaluation of the most important support in terms of occupation group, age, sex, and educational status; contributions of channels of training to job qualifications, and the subject of supplementary training in nondegree programs. Included in the appendices are the questionnaire used; a discussion of the postcensal study-data collection, processing, and tabulating; and ten additional fields of specialized study tabulations for the 1962 sample group.
