Statistical Profiles of Foreign Doctoral Recipients in Science and Engineering: Plans To Stay in the United States. An SRS Special Report.
Johnson, Jean M.
This report provides detailed statistical profiles of students from several major countries who were doctoral recipients in science and engineering at U.S. universities and the initial intent of these foreign doctoral recipients to locate in the United States after graduation. The statistical profiles included in this report contain two tables for each major country of origin in Appendix B. The first set of tables groups degrees by country and field between 1988 and 1996. These tables provide data on several characteristics of doctoral students: gender, visa status, sources of support, time to degree, planned location after Ph.D, and any definite employment plans in the United States. The second set of tables provides similar data for the years 1975, 1980, and 1985-96. (DDR)
