Gilford, Dorothy M.; Snyder, Joan
Selected data from the Commission on Human Resources data base are reported for two major groups that have been underrepresented in doctoral education in the past: minorities and women. A wide selection of tabulations of data on doctorate holders by sex and racial/ethnic group membership is presented. Characteristics of minority and women Ph.D. recipients are reported, including: citizenship by year of degree, labor force composition in 1975, region of birth, education of father and mother, age at Ph.D., marital status, number of dependents, broad field of doctorate, baccalaureate field, elapsed time, sources of support in graduate school, and postdoctoral employment and study plans. Data on women and minority Ph.D.'s in the U.S. labor force cover field of employment, employment sector, primary work activity, salary, and employment status. Further tabulations are provided on baccalaureate and doctoral institutions of women and minority Ph.D.'s. Recommendations for further study are appended. (LBH)
