"Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering" provides statistical information about the participation of women, minorities, and persons with disabilities in science and engineering education and employment. Its primary purpose is to serve as an information source; it offers no endorsement of or recommendations about policies or programs. National Science Foundation reporting on this topic is mandated by the Science and Engineering Equal Opportunities Act (Public Law 96-516). This report contains charts and data tables organized by topic (e.g., undergraduate enrollment, graduate degrees, employment) and also by group (e.g., Hispanics, minority women, persons with disabilities). The charts contain bulleted information describing key points. This report is a dynamic Web-based information source with data updated as they become available. Tables and figures in the report are current as of the Web release date, which appears at the bottom of each table and figure. Presentation slides, which are charts in PowerPoint, graphic, and spreadsheet formats, are provided for easy downloading. A complete update of the report is issued every 2 years for transmittal to Congress and federal agency heads. The Technical Notes section provides information on racial/ethnic and disability reporting categories, on the primary NSF and non-NSF sources of the data, and on sampling errors. (Contains 20 figures and 114 tables.)
