Earned Degrees Conferred: Analysis of Trends, 1965-66 Through 1974-75.
Ott, Mary Diederich; Baker, Curtis O.
The 10-year period 1965-66 through 1974-75, was one of notable growth in higher education, is summarized in statistical tables and commentary. Section I reports that the number of degrees awarded increased substantially at every level (bachelor's, master's, doctor's, and first-professional). Section II focuses on the number and proportions of men and women at each degree level and shows increased representation by women. Tables in Section III emphasize the number of degrees awarded by control and level of institution, indicating a decreasing proportion of degrees awarded by private institutions. Section IV analyzes the pattern of degrees awarded, by discipline division and by level for the five-year period 1970-71 through 1974-75. Discipline divisions that experienced the largest changes in numbers of degrees awarded are further analyzed in terms of specialties. At the bachelor's level, changes in numbers of degrees awarded in selected specialties (and thus changes in manpower supply) are compared with the projected labor demand for workers in these areas, using information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
