Abstract: The Graduate science student support and postdoctoral, fall 1973-fall 1980 surveys were designed to continue and expand on collection of information on graduate science students' sources of support and enrollment characteristics (previously collected through applications for NSF traineeships). Data include: characteristics of full-time graduate student support by funding source and type of support, number of foreign full-time students, first-year full-time graduate students by sex, part-time graduate students by sex (except first-year in 1980), racial/ethnic background for 1980, postdoctorate and non-faculty doctoral research staff by sex, source of support. This information is collected by department. Originally limited to only doctoral degree granting institutions, the survey was expanded in 1976 to include master's granting institutions. For Fall 1978, the population was reduced to doctorate granting institutions and an abbreviated survey instrument was employed. The full population was restored in 1978 and 1980 surveys, with revised full-scale survey form.
