Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering: 2004


"Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering is moving toward a new concept to provide the most current information available. Rather than being a static report, the new format is a dynamic Web-based information source with data updated as they become available. This site is a starting point for finding 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 site contains data tables organized by topic (e.g., undergraduate enrollment, graduate degrees, employment) and also by group (e.g., Hispanics, minority women, persons with disabilities). Presentation slides, which are charts in PowerPoint, graphic, and spreadsheet formats, are provided for easy downloading. Furthermore, links to additional data sources (e.g., National Center for Education Statistics, American Council on Education) and reports on these topics are provided. Data on this website are updated as they become available. A complete update of the report is issued every 2 years."
