Abstract: The 1978 survey is the fourth in a series of biennial surveys designed to gather detailed data on the nation's scientific and technical human resources. This series provides three main inputs to assessing these resources: 1) a nationwide inventory of the characteristics of individuals employed and/or trained in scientific, engineering, or technical fields, 2) analysis of career patterns of those individuals and 3) a comprehensive and basic statistical benchmark for evaluating scientific and technical personnel data obtained from a variety of sources. The 1974, 1976 and 1978 surveys are primarily concerned with updating the educational and work experience data collected in the 1972 survey. Data for the 1978 file include selected characteristics from the 1970 Census of Population (race, marital status, employment, industry, occupation, income) as well as the full set of data for the 1972, 1974, 1976 and 1978 surveys (age, sex, marital status, family background, military service; formal education and training and/or vocational or technical training histories; and employment history.
