Summary

A very significant and enigmatic situation confronting graduate education today is the lack of adequate and reliable data relating to the manpower supply and demand and employment status of Ph.D.'s. Considering this, the Council of Graduate Schools in the United States authorized a study of the manpower situation. A questionnaire was sent to members of 19 national associations to determine: the percentages of members who are unemployed or consider themselves underemployed, and whether any salary surveys have been conducted. In examining the responses, it became apparent that there is a lack of agreement as to whether an unemployment problem truly exists. The data suggest that certain disciplines (social sciences) are oversaturated or quickly reaching this point; however, the same cannot be said of health-related disciplines. The document presents in summary form the responses from the associations divided by disciplines. (Author/PG)
