National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Discussed is a survey of 235 institutions granting Ph.D. degrees. Findings showed that since 1975 the proportion of recent doctorates on the full-time faculty of 5 representative science and engineering fields has dropped by one-fifth. The number of full-time doctoral faculty increased by over 14% between 1968 and 1978, but the number of recent doctorates (defined as degrees held seven years or less) decreased by 39%. Data are presented on the professional activity of the recent doctoral faculty. (RE)
