1974-75 Graduate Student Survey. Physics Manpower Report.
Ellis, Susanne D.
The total graduate physics enrollment was 10,410 at the beginning of the 1974-75 academic year; this represents an eight-year decline from a peak of 15,500 graduate students. About 90% of these students are currently enrolled at Ph.D. granting institutions. The data presented in this report come from a survey of individual graduate students whose names were supplied by department chairmen; the total number of respondents was 6,164 or 77% of the 8000 names received. The tables and diagrams included in this report present data concerning employment offers for degree recipients; characteristics of the graduate student population and minority-group graduate students; graduate students enrolled by subfield and years of graduate study completed; sources of support for graduate students by sex and degree status; background characteristics of doctorate recipients; work activities and physics subfield for new doctorate recipients; and post-degree employment of degree recipients.
