Useful Stats I: S&E Doctorate Awards by State

November 08, 2002

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released a statistical report on Science and Engineering Doctorate Awards: 2001. 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 new NSF report includes an 18-page Table 6, which presents the distribution of doctorates awarded in 2001 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 2001 population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.

SSTI's table is available at: http://www.ssti.org/Digest/Tables/110802t.htm
