Characteristics of Doctoral Scientists and Engineers in the United States, 1975.
Scopino, John A.; And Others
This publication presents data on the supply, utilization, and characteristics of the Nation's doctoral scientists and engineers. The population surveyed consisted of individuals in the United States who held science or engineering (S/E) doctorates or who had received doctorates in non-S/E areas but were employed in S/E positions. The data in this series of reports issued by the National Science Foundation (NSF) take account of a 42-year time span following the receipt of the doctoral degree. The data on doctoral scientists and engineers in this report are presented in four sections: Section I presents data on the total population; Section II on the employed labor force; Section III provides data on scientists and engineers in the three largest employment sectors of the economy; and Section IV presents data on employed women. Among the highlights are: (1) a 13% increase in the population of doctoral scientists and engineers from 1973-75; (2) a 23% increase of women Ph.D.'s in science and engineering; and (3) an unemployment rate of under 1% in 1975.
