Ph.D. Manpower: Employment Demand and Supply 1972-85.
Abramson, Elinor W.
Data are reported that indicate that, even under the most extreme alternative projections, Ph.D manpower supply will continue through the mid-1980's to greatly exceed demand. Some of the implications of the imbalance of this relationship and of the groups primarily affected (individuals, universities, other employers, and society) are discussed. Appended are data sources and statistical methods as well as tables on: current employment of Ph.D.'s 1972; estimated age distribution of Ph.D.'s, 1972; estimated employment of Ph.D.'s, by field, 1968-1972; percent distribution of Ph.D.'s employed by educational institutions, 1966-1972; estimated age distribution of Ph.D.'s, 1985; and estimated supply of new Ph.D.'s, 1972-1985.
