Characteristics of Doctoral Scientists and Engineers in the United States: 1983. Detailed Statistical Tables. Surveys of Science Resources Series.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Data on demographic and employment characteristics of United States doctoral scientists and engineers are presented in detailed statistical tables. These data (which reflect the results of the 1983 Survey of Doctorate Recipients, the sixth in a biennial series that began in 1973) were obtained from individuals who received science or engineering (SE) doctorates between 1940 and 1982 or who had received doctorates during this same time period in non-SE fields but were employed in SE positions. Characteristics considered include: sex; age; race; citizenship; employment status; primary work activity; salaries; academic rank; SE field; years of professional experience; and geographic location. In addition, selected data from the previous surveys (1973, 1975, 1977, 1979, and 1981) are provided in separate tables. These time-series tables present data on the total population, total employed labor force, and employed women as well as data relating to doctoral scientists and engineers employed in educational institutions, business and industry, and the federal government. Technical notes (including information on survey methodology, coverage, concepts, definitions, and sampling errors) and a copy of the questionnaire used in the survey are included. (JN)
