Gender Divides in Earned Doctorates
February 15, 2011
Duke University Sociologist Kieran Healy from Crooked Timber broke down the NORC 2009 Survey of Earned Doctorates by Gender. From SED: “The Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED) is a federal agency survey conducted by NORC for the National Science Foundation and five other federal agencies (National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Education, National Endowment for the Humanities, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration).
The SED gathers information annually from 45,000 new U.S. research doctorate graduates about their educational histories, funding sources, and post-doctoral plans.”
