Mulvey, Patrick; Shindel, Brandon
Statistical Research Center of the American Institute of Physics
Each fall the Statistical Research Center conducts its Survey of Enrollments and Degrees, which asks all degree-granting physics and astronomy departments in the US to provide information concerning the numbers of students they have enrolled and counts of recent degree recipients. In connection with this survey, the authors ask for the names and contact information for their recent degree recipients. This degree recipient information is used to conduct the authors' follow-up survey in the winter following the academic year in which they received their degrees. The data in this "Focus On" come from that survey. (Contains 3 figures and 3 tables.)
