The data presented in this report were collected in the 18th annual National Science Foundation (NSF)/National Institutes of Health (NIH) Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering, covering 1989. The survey universe is composed of all institutions in the United States with departments or programs offering courses of study at the postbaccalaureate level in any science and engineering (S/E) field. Medical schools and other specialized institutions offering first-professional doctorates in health-related fields are also included. The 1989 survey universe included 334 doctorate-granting institutions and 275 master's-granting institutions. Section I presents descriptions of the survey methodology and response analysis; section II lists the institutions surveyed, by degree level, along with their identifying Federal Interagency Committee on Education (FICE) codes. Section III, subsection A, presents national totals for all institutions, both doctorate- and master's-granting for fall 1989 (academic year 1989/90). Subsection B contains trend data for all graduate institutions for the period 1981-89; subsection C contains trend statistics for doctorate-granting institutions only, and subsection D presents similar trend data for master's-granting institutions. Subsection E contains institutional listing and rankings of individual doctorate-granting institutions on the basis of fall 1989 data. Section IV displays copies of the survey instruments, along with summary questionnaire facsimiles containing data for all departments or for selected groups of departments. The facsimiles present data for all institutions, doctorate-granting institutions, master's-granting institutions, and other selected groups of institutions. (KR)
