Analysis Variable:   Number of Non-Faculty Research Staff with Medical Degrees (pre-2010)
This variable is the number of non-faculty research staff who hold first professional medical degrees (M.D., D.O., D.D.S, and D.V.M.) in GSS-eligible science, engineering, and health (SEH) units in the fall of the data collection year. Breakdowns of these data are available by: academic institution, state, Carnegie classification, type-of-control (public or private), discipline, and highest degree granted (unit and/or institution level).
Non-faculty research staff include all doctoral scientists and engineers who are involved principally in research activities but are not considered either postdoctoral appointees or members of the regular faculty.
Data are available for fall 1983-2009.
Please see the data source help for details on the population size and structure for each year.
