Doctorate Recipients from United States Universities: Summary Report, 1999.
Sanderson, Allen R.; Dugoni, Bernard L.; Hoffer, Thomas B.; Myers, Sharon L.
This is the thirty-third in a series of reports on research doctorates awarded by colleges and universities in the United States. The data presented in this report are from the annual Survey of Earned Doctorates, a census of research doctoral recipients who earned their degrees between July 1, 1998, and June 30, 1999. This survey, conducted since 1958, is sponsored by six federal agencies: the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Education, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. All survey responses become part of the Doctorate Records File, a virtually complete database on research doctorate recipients from 1920 to 1999. The overall response rate for the 1999 survey was 91.7 percent. The report begins by reviewing overall trends in research doctorates awarded by U.S. universities and continues by discussing trends in the seven broad fields in which research doctorate recipients earn their degrees. Trends in doctorate awards by sex, race/ethnicity, citizenship, parental education, and time to degree are described next, and the report concludes with discussion of the sources of financial support during graduate school and the postgraduation status and plans of doctorate recipients. A special section is devoted to the interstate migration of U.S. doctorate recipients from birth to initial postgraduation location. The report includes numerous figures and tables. Appendices include additional statistics, technical notes, and the survey instrument. (EV)
