This graph shows the percentage of bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees awarded to individuals marginalized by race/ethnicity in physics at US institutions. In this case, the individuals marginalized by race/ethnicity include Black and African Americans, Hispanic and Latino Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders. Also included is the percent of college-age (18-29 years) United States permanent residents who are marginalized by race/ethnicity.
Degrees awarded to temporary residents are excluded from calculations. Data on the college age population are collected from the US Census.
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, IPEDS, and the U.S. Census Bureau as shown above.
