Abstract: The National Survey of College Graduates (NSCG) primarily covers experienced scientists and engineers (S&E) with a bachelor's or master's degree. Some smaller groups are also included such as those with an S&E Ph.D. earned from a foreign institution or those working in S&E occupations, but with no S&E degree. NSCG accounts for the largest segment of SESTAT's target population covering about 80 to 90 percent of the population. The 1993 NSCG was a special baseline survey that included all those who had earned a bachelor's degree or higher prior to 4/1/90 whether in science or engineering or not. It covered a much larger target population than the usual NSCG covering over 30 million college graduates, rather than the usual 10 to 12 million sientists and engineers. The sample for this survey was drawn from 1990 Census Long Form respondents those residing in the United States on April 1, 1990 or residing abroad as U.S. military personnel. Information about labor force particpation, edcation experiences, and demographics is included in this surey. For more information about NSCG, please visit SESTAT.
