APS has outlined the steps one must take to collect the data used in our graphs and tables.
- Go to WebCASPAR.
- If the data you need involves race or ethnicity, use "IPEDS Completion Survey by Race". Otherwise, "IPEDS Completion Survey" will suffice.
- For analysis variables, use both “Degrees/Awards Conferred (NSF population of institutions)” and “Degrees/Awards Conferred-2nd Major (NSF population of institutions)”.
- Classification variables commonly used by APS include: Level of degree, Gender, Race/Ethnicity, and Academic Disciple, 6-digit classification. Please use the APS definition for Physics when selecting Academic Discipline.
