The data presented in this report show trends in doctorate production by science and engineering (S&E) field and recipient characteristics, institutions awarding doctorates, and postgraduation plans of recipients. The data comes from the Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED), which is conducted annually. Doctoral degrees such as the Ph.D. or D.Sc. are included in these surveys, but first-professional degrees such as the J.D. or M.D. are not. Data from the SED are collected directly from the individual doctorate recipients. Approximately 94% of the annual cohort of doctorate recipients responded to the questionnaire, which is distributed to them through the cooperation of the Graduate Deans. (PR)
