Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields are widely regarded as critical to the national economy. To provide a nationally representative portrait of undergraduate students' experiences in STEM education, these Web Tables summarize longitudinal data from a cohort of first-time, beginning students who started postsecondary education in a bachelor's or associate's degree program in 2003-04, examining their entrance into and attrition from STEM fields and the extent to which they participated in STEM coursework over a period of 6 academic years, from 2003-04 to 2008-09. The following are appended: (1) Classification of postsecondary STEM courses in BPS:04/09; and (2) Classification of major field of study in BPS:04/09.
