Characteristics of Doctoral Scientists and Engineers in the United States: 2008

Short Description:

This report presents data from the 2008 Survey of Doctorate Recipients (SDR). The SDR is a biennial panel survey that collects longitudinal data on demographic and general employment characteristics of individuals who have received a research doctorate in a science, engineering, or health field from a U.S. academic institution. Starting shortly after they receive their doctorate, sampled individuals are eligible for inclusion in the survey until they reach age 76. The SDR sample is augmented each cycle with new samples of the most recent cohorts of science, engineering, and health doctorate recipients, identified by the Survey of Earned Doctorates, an annual census of research doctorates awarded in the United States.
