The data provided in the statistical tables in this publication are derived from the National Science Foundation's Survey of Scientific and Engineering Personnel Employed at Universities and Colleges, January 1982. The tables present statistics on the characteristics of scientists and engineers employed by institutions of higher education. The tables are presented under the following headings: trends; sex; institutional control and full-time equivalents; institutional rankings; top 100 doctorate-granting institutions; institutional rankings by sex and type of employment; geographic distribution (by control/status, field, full-time/part-time by field, and by status/sex); type of institution; historically black colleges; and institutional categories. Data for scientists/engineers in university-administered, federally-funded research and development centers are presented in tables in a separate section; data are provided by field (1975-1982), for males and females separately by field, and by field (January 1982). Survey summaries are also presented for all institutions and for doctorate-, master's-, and bachelor's-granting institutions, non-science/engineer degree-granting institutions and 2-year institutions, and for federally-funded research and development centers. Copies of instruments used in the survey are included. (JN)
