A statistical and narrative summary of the results of the 1983-1984 Survey of Earned Doctorates is presented. Basic information, such as sex, field, institution, and year of Ph.D., is presented for all of the 31,253 doctorate recipients; complete questionnaire data are included for the 29,713 Ph.D. recipients who responded to the questionnaire, while abbreviated records were compiled for the rest. Research and applied-research doctorates in all fields are covered, excluding such degrees as the M.D., D.D.S., O.D., D.V.M., and J.D. Baccalaureate sources of the doctorate recipients are identified, including the types of institutions they attended and the productivity of their institutions (e.g., sources by field, gender, and race).
