National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Since 1966, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has monitored the annual inflows of scientists and engineers (SE) from abroad to provide information on levels and trends in scientist and engineering immigration and other related areas. This report provides data (in 6 charts and 10 statistical tables), which update previously published data, for fiscal years 1976-78 and 1982-84 (data for 1979-81 are not available). Charts summarize data on immigrant SE by type of admission (1966-84), adjustment-of-status immigrants as a proportion of total immigrants (1966-84), and SE admitted as immigrants in 1984, by region or birth, by region of intended United States residence and by age group. Data presented in the statistical tables include: immigration SE by field of specialization (1976-78 and 1982-84); immigrant SE by country or region of last permanent residence and major group (separate tables for 1982, 1983, and 1984); immigrant SE by country or region of birth and major group (separate tables for 1982, 1983, and 1984); migration patterns of SE who became immigrants in 1984; immigrant SE by state of intended residence and major group (1984); and immigrant SE by sex, age group, and region of last permanent residence (1984).
