[full-text, 293 pages]
Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering provides statistical
information about the participation of women, minorities, and persons with disabilities in
science and engineering education and employment. Its primary purpose is to serve as
an information source. It offers no endorsement of or recommendations about policies or programs.
National Science Foundation reporting on this topic is mandated by the Science and Engineering
Equal Opportunities Act (Public Law 96-516).
This digest highlights key statistics drawn from a wide variety of data sources. Data and figures in
this digest are organized into six topical areas—enrollment, field of degree, employment status,
occupation, academic employment, and persons with disabilities.
Surveys conducted by the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES) at the
National Science Foundation provided a large portion of the data used in this report. NCSES has
a central role in the collection, interpretation, analysis, and dissemination of objective data on the
science and engineering enterprise.
Online, the reader is invited to explore trends in greater depth through detailed data tables and
interactive graphics ( www.nsf.gov/statistics/wmpd/. Technical notes and other online resources
are provided to aid in interpreting the data. The data tables are available both in portable document
format (PDF) and as Excel files for easy viewing, printing, and downloading
