Smith, Stanley V.; Wells, Agnes Q.
Data are presented on all earned degrees conferred by degree-granting institutions in the aggregate United States. Primarily, this information provides a benchmark for reporting the trained manpower pool in discipline specialities, by training level, and for eight selected professions. The data also fulfills several needs of various state and federal legislative and executive agencies. The data were collected from the survey instrument "Degrees and Other Formal Awards Conferred" for the 11th annual Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics. Data on baccalaureate and higher degrees are presented in tables that show the numbers of degrees granted by level and degree, institutional control and level, sex of recipient, state, and discipline division, and specialty. Comparative data for 1971-72 are included, and parts A and B of the survey form are appended. (SW)
