Projections of Science and Engineering Doctorate Supply and Utilization 1982 and 1987.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
This report represents the National Science Foundation's fourth projection analysis of science and engineering doctorate supply and utilization through 1987. The 1979 study incorporates the effect of the domestic market for highly trained science and engineering (S/E) personnel upon the numbers of S/E doctorates awarded by American universities. This report consists of four chapters. Chapter one describes the method used to project the 1982 and 1987 supplies of doctoral scientists and engineers in five fields. Chapter two briefly describes the utilization of doctoral scientists and engineers in 1977, and explains how 1982 and 1987 utilization estimates were derived by summing eight categories of S/E-related employment. Chapter three presents the 1982 and 1987 balances between full-time supply and utilization in the market for scientists and engineers. Chapter four presents a summary of projection methods and assumptions. Appendices which include technical notes and a bibliography are also included. (HM)
