This graph shows the percent of physics doctoral degrees earned by women, and their respective distribution to permanent and temporary residents in the United States. The “Domestic” category includes all legal permanent residents. Data from 1966-1994 come from the NSF Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED), and data from 1995-present come from IPEDS.
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 SED as shown above.
