This graph shows the five-year average percentage of individuals marginalized by race/ethnicity in physics compared to both the percentage of individuals marginalized by race/ethnicity in the US college age population and among all bachelor's degrees awarded. 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 individuals marginalized by race/ethnicity.
Degrees awarded to temporary residents are not included in the calculations. Data on the college age population are collected from the US Census. Data on physics faculty comes from the American Institute of Physics (AIP).
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, AIP, IPEDS, and the U.S. Census Bureau as shown above.
