Ries, Paula; Thurgood, Delores H.
This report presents a summary of the 1991-92 results of the national Survey of Earned Doctorates conducted each year since 1958. The report presents an analysis of the numbers of doctorate recipients including data with regard to number of degrees by selected characteristics (gender, citizenship, minority groups), fields, time-to-degree, financial support, and post-graduation plans. The report has been redesigned to facilitate the use of the data by institutional and governmental leaders to develop policies. The first section analyzes trends and provides figures to illustrate them. Data tables are located in the following section including tables which present related data in detail. Four appendixes present basic tables, trend tables for 1982-1992, technical notes, and the survey instrument. (JB)
