Use of the NSF Graduate Student Support Surveys for Policy Analysis.
Breneman, David W.
This paper contains a report concerning trends of enrollment and financial support in graduate science education submitted to the National Board on Graduate Education. For the study, three surveys were utilized: (1) National Science Foundation's (NSF) annual surveys of graduate student support, fiscal years 1968-73; (2) National Research Council Doctorate Records File, fiscal years 1968-73; and (3) American Council on Education, "A Rating of Graduate Programs" (prepared by Kenneth Roose and C. J. Anderson). In this paper, reference is made primarily from the NSF surveys, for they enable analyses by academic department and offer an eight-year longitudinal basis. Trends in graduate enrollments offering statistics on those departments rated as highest, next highest, and so forth by Roose-Anderson ratings are reported. Other topics include sources of student support and distributions of types of financial backing. Appendices present data taken from NSF Graduate Student Surveys. (CP)
