Abstract: This longitudinal study provides information on workers engaged in natural science, social science, engineering, and related occupations. Respondents were interviewed in 1982, 1984, 1986, and 1989. Questions were asked on education and training both on and off the job, employment status and job characteristics, marital status and presence of children at home, and physical disabilities or limitations. The universe of this study consists of persons identified in the 1980 Census as being in one of several scientific or engineering occupations and as having certain educational and occupational characteristics. These characteristics include having completed four years of college (two years for engineering fields), having been a member of the civilian labor force within the past five years, and having the most recent job fall into one of the designated scientific or engineering occupations.
