The National Sample of Scientists and Engineers, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, was intended to provide current data on the educational, employment, and career characteristics of persons in scientific and engineering fields. The panel for this survey was a subpopulation of participants in the 1972 Professional, Technical and Scientific Manpower Survey. From characteristics determined in the 1972 survey, participants were classified as: computer specialists, engineers, mathematical specialists, life scientists, physical scientists, environmental scientists, psychologists, or social scientists. For each group, data were gathered on sex, age, race, highest degree held, unemployment and job mobility, along with several other criteria. (CP)
