Science and Engineering Personnel: A National Overview.
Crowley, Michael F.
This is the second in a biennial series of reports designed to furnish a comprehensive overview of the status of U.S. scientific and technological efforts as they relate to the employment and other characteristics of science/engineering (S/E) personnel. The report begins with an integrated overview of current utilization and supply patterns for all U.S. scientists and engineers and the roles of women and minorities in science and engineering. Issues related to S/E personnel in universities are discussed, along with the role of precollege mathematics and science training on students' decisions to enter careers in science or engineering. The report concludes with an examination of the flows of scientists and engineers into and out of science and engineering. Appendix tables provide a comprehensive summary of data on S/E personnel.
