Appendix B. Codes Used in Degree and Occupation Fields

 

Table B-1 provides a comparison of the science, engineering, and health doctoral fields of study used in the data tables to those fields in both the SDR questionnaire and the Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED) questionnaire. For more information on the SED, please visit http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/srvydoctorates/.

Table B-2 provides a crosswalk between the major, minor, and detailed occupational categories used for reporting occupational data in the SDR data tables. The detailed occupation is reported by the respondents for their principal job held during the survey reference week of 1 October 2008—or their last job held, if not employed during the reference week.
