Characteristics of Doctoral Scientists and Engineers in the United States, 1973.
Scopino, John A.; And Others
This publication presents data on the supply, utilization, and characteristics of U.S. doctoral scientists and engineers. The population surveyed consisted of individuals in the United States who held science or engineering doctorates, or who had received doctorates in nonscience and nonengineering areas but were employed in science or engineering positions. Included in the population were individuals who received their doctorates between January 1, 1930 and June 30, 1972, inclusive. Subsequent surveys in this biennial series will take account of new entrants into this segment of the nation's scientific and engineering manpower resources. The data on doctoral scientists and engineers in this report are presented in three parts: charts providing a broad perspective; tables presenting more specific, although selective, information; and appendices containing the questionnaire and specialties list used in the survey, plus notes on the survey methodology, coverage, concepts, and definitions used in the survey.
