Snyder, Thomas D.
This document presents trend data for degrees conferred on U.S. students attending 2-year and 4-year institutions from 1969-70 to 1993-94. The data, which includes statistical tables, graphs and narrative, were obtained from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and the Higher Education General Information Survey and show the number and percent of degrees conferred by field, degree level, and sex of student, including breakdowns on degrees conferred on minorities and women. Ten figures highlight data on: U.S. resident population age 18 to 29, by sex, 1940-94; percent of degrees (associate, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral) conferred on resident minority students, 1977-94; and percent of degrees conferred, by sex, 1970-94. Data is organized according to the following field-of-study categories: agricultural and natural resources; biological/life sciences; business, computer and information sciences; education; engineering; health professions and related sciences; mathematics; physical sciences and science technologies; social sciences and history; and first professional degrees. Data for minorities do not show trends in degrees earned by subpopulations. However, data is provided on degrees conferred for the following groups: Black, non-Hispanic; Hispanic; Asian or Pacific Islander; American Indian/Alaskan Native; White, non-Hispanic; and nonresident alien.
