Graduate Science Education: Student Support and Postdoctorals, Fall 1977. Technical Notes and Detailed Statistical Tables.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
The fall 1977 survey of Graduate Science Student Support and Postdoctorals (GSSSP) covered graduate science and engineering departments at doctorate-granting institutions, including medical schools, and departments in institutions that grant a master's as the highest degree. The 1977 universe consisted of 370 doctorate institutions with 7,951 departments and an additional 1,562 departments in 326 master's institutions. Tables are presented on the number of institutions and departments surveyed under the Graduate Traineeship Program from 1967 to 1971 and those covered by the GSSSP from 1972 to 1977. The extent of the expansion at both doctorate-granting and master's-granting institutions is indicated, and department and enrollment coverage since the survey series began are included. Institutions participating in the survey are presented alphabetically within each state for both doctorate-granting and master's-granting institutions accompanied by the classification code developed by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education. Instructions for completing the departmental data sheets, the survey instruments, and summary tables of the findings are appended. (SW)
