This report presents data on the characteristics of men and women who received a bachelor's or master's degree in a science or engineering field from U.S. academic institutions during the 1990/91 and 1991/92 academic years. The data were collected in 1993 and reflect the status of individuals as of April of that year. In addition to the demographic characteristics of recent college graduates with science and engineering degrees, the data may be used to understand the employment experiences of recent graduates, such as the extent to which recent graduates entered the labor force, whether they were able to find employment, and the attributes of that employment. Results of this survey are presented separately for bachelor's and master's degree recipients, and also separately for graduates of the two graduating class years. This report is divided into three sections. The technical notes in section A contain information on the survey methodology, coverage, concepts, definitions, and sampling errors. Detailed tabulations from the survey are presented in section B. A copy of the written questionnaire is included in section C. (JRH)
