Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering: Fall 1999.
National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
The data presented in this book are derived from the Fall 1999 National Science Foundation/National Institute of Health (NSF/NIH) Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering. The published data represent estimates of total enrollment in science and engineering programs in approximately 11,833 graduate departments at 599 institutions in the United States and outlying areas. NSF has collected data on graduate enrollment and postdoctoral employment since 1966. All eligible institutions were included in the survey beginning in 1988. In 1992, the citizenship categories requested were modified to conform to those used in other surveys conducted by NSF and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The text is divided into six categories including general notes, technical notes, detailed statistical tables, survey materials, list of doctorate-granting and master's-granting institutions, and getting information on the World Wide Web.
