Graduate Enrollment in Science and Engineering Continued To Decline in 1998.
SRS Data Brief, v1999 Dec 15 1999
This Science Resources Studies Data Brief reports on statistics related to graduate enrollment in science and engineering in the United States for 1998. The data presented here were obtained from the National Science Foundation's 1998 Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering, which collected data at 601 institutions in the United States and outlying areas. The number of science and engineering graduate students fell for the fifth consecutive year, although enrollment in computer science and electrical engineering increased. The study also notes that enrollment for minority groups has continued to rise. (WRM)
