Schietinger, E. F.
Output of college level manpower (supply) is one of the two major subjects upon which the Southern Regional Education Board project on manpower and education seeks to provide information. The present report is designed as a reference for application to problems in higher educational planning and decisionmaking. Highlights of the report include: (1) Institutions in SREB states in 1971-72 awarded 225,477 bachelor's degrees, 5,739 master's degrees, 10,658 first professional degrees, and 6,529 doctoral degrees. (2) Of all bachelor's degrees awarded in the South, 58.1 percent were in the fields of education, business and management, and social sciences. (3) In the South, the number of degrees awarded in 1971-72 increased over 1970-71 by 5.1 percent at the bachelor's level. (4) Large increases in degrees awarded for fields in which the South's share of the nation's output is already high were noted at the bachelor's level in home economics and communications. (5) Number of degrees awarded per program in the South rose from 20.8 to 21.2 at the bachelor's level, from 12.3 to 13.4 at the master's level, from 5.0 to 5.3 at the doctoral level, and from 106.9 to 117.1 at the first professional level.
