National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
The 11th Annual Survey of Graduate Science and Engineering Students and Postdoctorates requested data from all institutions of higher education in the United States in which there was at least one science or engineering program leading to a master's or doctoral degree, including medical schools and other components granting first-professional doctorates in health-related fields. These data are presented in detailed statistical tables provided in five parts labeled A-E. The first part includes summary data for all institutions, both doctorate- and master's-granting for fall 1982. The second part presents summary trend statistics from all graduate institutions, 1975-1982. The third and fourth parts show similar trend statistics for doctorate-granting and master's-granting institutions. The tables in the last part provide information on total departmental coverage for each of the last seven survey cycles and rankings of individual institutions based on fall 1982 data. Among the variables considered are sex, race, citizenship, field of science or engineering, employment status, geographic distribution, type of control, full-time status, and part-time status. Also provided are technical notes, classification of institutions, and copies of 1982 survey forms together with survey instructions and summaries of institutional responses. (JN)
