Earned Doctorates (NSF Study)
May 6, 2011 § Leave a comment
The National Science Foundation (in collaboration with a lot of other foundations and organizations) has been collecting data on earned doctorates since 1970. They have recently released the statistics from their 2009 survey. In honor of our graduates I thought I’d share a few of the tables from their report, detailing trends in earned doctorates from 1989-2009. For more information (like the actual numbers that are represented by these tables) and analysis be sure to check out their website as well as the NORC website (they’re the agency that conducts the survey for NSF).
