Racial and Ethnic Diversity among U.S.-Educated Science, Engineering, and Health Doctorate Recipients: Methods of Reporting Diversity [9 January 2012]
NSF 12-304 | January 2012 |
[full-text, 10 pages]
This InfoBrief describes two common methods for tabulating race and ethnicity and uses these methods to present the racial diversity and the Hispanic or Latino origins of the science, engineering, and health (SEH) doctoral population. In this report, the SEH doctoral population comprises individuals in the United States who hold a research doctorate from a U.S. academic institution in an SEH field. In 2008, 98.8% of the estimated 752,000 members of this population reported being a single race, and 1.2% reported being two or more races.
The percentage of Hispanic doctorate holders increased between 2001 and 2008 among individuals in the SEH doctoral population who were U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Among those without Hispanic origins, Asian and black or African American doctorate holders who reported being a single race also increased from 2001 to 2008, but the percentage of individuals reporting multiple race combinations remained virtually unchanged. Individuals who reported being American Indian or Alaska Native and those who reported being Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander were more likely than others not of Hispanic ethnicity to report being two or more races.
