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 ( 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
