The Effects of Nonresponse Bias on the Results of the 1975 Survey of Doctoral Scientists and Engineers.
Spisak, Andrew W.; Maxfield, Betty D.
This report is based on the results of the Survey of Doctoral Scientists and Engineers and the Nonresponse Bias Survey published by the Commission on Human Resources of the National Research Council in 1975. Possible biases in estimates of variables are examined. Estimates based on data from the 1975 survey respondents, plus the nonresponse bias sample, are compared with the survey's statistics, adjusted for nonresponse. Bias is examined by evaluating the differences between the two estimates. (Author/SA)
