NSF Releases 2006 Doctorates Data

National Science Foundation has posted a page in its Science and Engineering Statistics section to request revised tables from its 2006 Survey of Earned Doctorates. The note at the top of the page says, "SRS (Division of Science Resources Statistics) will be releasing revised tables from the 2006 Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED) for the Summary Report, Race/Ethnicity/Gender (REG) and Baccalaureate-Origin tables released by the survey contractor in previous years. Copies of the new 2006 SED tables will be forwarded via email, at no charge." The page then gives a form to request the new tables.

As we reported two weeks ago and last month, NSF had stopped reporting data on numbers of minorities earning doctorates in some scientific specialties if those numbers fall below a certain threshold. NSF promised earlier this month to release the missing data, including those in its 2006 survey.
