Physics Degrees Earned by Underrepresented Minorities

URM Physics Degrees Earned 2020 graph

This graph shows the percentage of bachelor's and doctoral degrees awarded to underrepresented ethnic and racial minorities (URMs) in physics at US institutions. In this case, URMs include African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders. Also included is the percent of college-age (18-24 years) United States permanent residents who are URMs. Degrees awarded to temporary residents are excluded from calculations. Data on the college age population are collected from the US Census.
