National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
The tables contained in this document present data on the characteristics of men and women who received a bachelor's or master's degree in a science or engineering field from academic institutions in the U.S. during the 1992-93 and 1993-94 academic years. The data were collected in 1995 and 1996 and reflect the status of individuals as of April 1995. 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 are presented separately for bachelor's and master's degree recipients as well as for graduates of the two graduating class years. This report contains three sections: (1) technical notes in Section A contain information on survey methodology, coverage, concepts, definitions, and sampling error; (2) detailed tabulations from the computer-assisted telephone interviews and mail questionnaire surveys are presented in Section B; and (3) Section C contains a copy of the mail questionnaire used.
