Earned Degrees Conferred 1974-75: Summary Data [Postsecondary Education].
Baker, Curtis O.; Wells, Agnes Q.
The data on earned degrees conferred in the aggregate United States are based on one survey instrument from the tenth annual Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). This instrument, "Degrees and Other Formal Awards Conferred," covered the period July 1, 1974, to June 30, 1975. The tables in this report provide data on baccalaureate and higher degrees. Tables show numbers of degrees granted by level of degree, institutional control and type, sex of recipient, state, and disciplines division and specialty. Data on awards below the baccalaureate level are to be presented in a separate report. The information presented in the study provides a benchmark for reporting the pool of trained manpower available in discipline specialties, by level of training, and for eight selected professions. This information is required by a number of legislative and executive agencies at the state and federal levels. (JMF)
