This report examines the representation of Hispanics among bachelor's degree recipients in the physical sciences and engineering in the US. Hispanics have been increasing their representation across the physical sciences and engineering at an outstanding rate. More broadly, from 2002-2012 there has been a significant increase in bachelor's degrees earned by Hispanics in the US. These statistics are important because Hispanics are considered an under-represented minority (URM) group across the physical sciences and engineering. The National Center for Education Statistics collects data on the ethnicity of all bachelor's degree recipients. This report summarizes Hispanic recipients of bachelor's degrees among 15 fields in the physical sciences and engineering.
