And the Survey Says…

Since 2000, we have published a series of flyers highlighting various data of interest to physics faculty members and students. For example, our Fall 2015 Physics Trends flyers display the employment sectors where physics bachelor's degree recipients work, the knowledge used frequently by mid-career PhD physicists working primarily in private sector jobs, and the proportion of women among physics faculty members. We have recently added a new resource for high school physics teachers: flyers focusing on high school physics. PDFs of both the Physics Trends and high school flyers are available for download at: www.aip.org/statistics/physics-trends and www.aip.org/statistics/highschool. We also have a limited number of printed copies of the Physics Trends flyers which we are happy to send to you upon request. We appreciate the responses from each of you who has helped us collect these data. Next month we will look at Hispanic representation among bachelor's degree recipients in physical sciences and engineering.
