This graph shows the percentage of degrees in various fields earned by underrepresented ethnic and racial minorities (URMs) at U.S. institutions. In this case, URMs include African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indian/Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. Degrees awarded to temporary residents are not included in the calculations.
The data represent a 5-year average for the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees for the five most recent years that data are available.
This graph is freely available for your use. You may use our graphs in reports and presentations, or you may use the raw data to create new graphs and charts. Credit APS and IPEDS as shown to the right.
