Data on the characteristics of scientists and engineers employed by higher education institutions and university-administered federally funded research and development institutions are presented. These data, derived from the National Science Foundation (NSF) 1984 Survey of Scientific and Engineering Personnel Employed at Universities and Colleges, are presented in 78 tables under these headings: (1) trends; (2) sex; (3) institutional control and full-time equivalents; (4) type of institution; (5) historically black colleges; (6) geographic distribution; (7) institutional rankings; (8) the top 100 doctorate-granting institutions; (9) institutional rankings by sex and type of employment; and (10) institutional categories. Data within these categories are broken down, when applicable, by sex, science and engineering field, full-time and part-time employment equivalent, status, and other variables. Sixteen summary tables are also presented, providing data by type of public or private doctorate-, master's-, or bachelor's-granting institution for the various science and engineering fields. A sample questionnaire, instructions, and related materials are appended. (The data in this report reflect NSF's conversion in 1984 of a full universe survey into a sample survey of institutions of higher education.) (JN)
