Doctorate Recipients from United States Universities. Summary Report 1976.
Gilford, Dorothy M.; Syverson, Peter D.
Data gathered from the Survey of Earned Doctorates during fiscal year 1976 are summarized. The Survey is conducted annually by the Board on Human Resources Data and Analysis (BHRDA) of the Commission on Human Resources (CHR) of the National Research Council. Questionnaire forms, distributed with the cooperation of the graduate deans, are filled out by the graduates as they complete all requirements for their doctoral degrees. The total number of doctorate recipients in 1976 was 32,923, essentially the same of 1974 and 1975. Highlights of the findings include: the proportion of doctorates granted to women; trend data on U.S. doctorates by major field and sex; trends in the postgraduation plans of the doctorate recipients; and current data on the extent of field switching between field of baccalaureate and field of Ph. D. and between field of Ph. D. and field of employment. (LBH)
