Codes used in data tables: * = suppressed when population estimate < 50. D = suppressed to avoid disclosure of confidential information. S = suppressed for reliability; coefficient of variation exceeds publication standards.
S&E = science and engineering; SE = standard error.
a In this table, minority includes Hispanic or Latino, and not Hispanic or Latino American Indian or Alaska Native, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and 7,900 respondents reporting more than one race. Because of the large number of Asians among the doctoral population, they are shown separately in table 37.
b Hispanic or Latino may be of any race.
c American Indian or Alaska Native, Black or African American, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander are single race.
d From 1999 to 2008, data for Industrial engineers were mislabeled as "Materials/metallurgical engineers." For all years, data in this category have included only industrial engineers. For all years, data on Materials/metallurgical engineers have been included only in Other engineers.
NOTES: Numbers are rounded to the nearest 100. Standard errors are rounded up to the nearest 50. Detail may not add to total because of rounding.
