Useful Stats: 2002 S&E Doctorate Awards by State

November 14, 2003

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released a statistical report on Science and Engineering Doctorate Awards: 2002. The data show trends in science and engineering (S&E) doctorate awards by S&E field and recipient characteristics, institutions awarding doctorates, and postgraduation plans of recipients.

The 18-page Table 6 of the report presents the distribution of doctorates awarded in 2002 by institution, by state and by major field. SSTI has prepared an abbreviated table providing a state-by-state ranking for doctorates awarded by major field. The SSTI table also includes the values and state rankings for the total S&E doctorates awarded per 100,000 residents within each state, using the 2002 population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.

SSTI's table is available at: http://www.ssti.org/Digest/Tables/111403t2.htm
