The 1972 Scientist and Engineer Population Redefined. Volume 1. Demographic, Educational, and Professional Characteristics.
Seltzer, Norman
The purpose of this study by the National Science Foundation was to redefine the scientist/engineer population along demographic, educational and professional criteria, in terms of changes since the 1970 national census. The study uses as a base the 1972 Professional, Technical, and Scientific Manpower Survey with a sample of 100,000 persons. Respondents are classified into one of 28 separate science and engineering fields. From these classifications, subjects are grouped according to demographic, social, educational, and professional characteristics. Included in the appendices are criteria for redefined populations of scientists and engineers, the sample of weighing and estimating procedures, and a reproduction of the questionnaire used in the survey.
