IPEDS is the core postsecondary education data system for the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) of the U.S. Department of Education. The PhD data in this focus on were all compiled from WebCASPAR, the integrated science and engineering resources data system maintained by the National Science Foundation. This report shows that the number of bachelor's degrees awarded in the US continues to increase. About 1.58 million people earned bachelor's degrees in academic year 2007-08. Of them, fewer than 10,800 were Native Americans. However, this small number did represent a significant increase (40%) from the 7,700 Native Americans who earned bachelor's degrees a decade earlier.
