Scientists and Engineers Statistical Data System
SESTAT is the Scientists and Engineers Statistical Data System. This integrated data system is a unique source of longitudinal information on the education and employment of the college-educated U.S. science and engineering workforce. These data are collected through three biennial surveys:
The NSCG is the core of SESTAT providing data on the U.S. scientists and engineers (S&E) workforce with at least a bachelor's degree. The NSRCG supplements these data with the inflow of recent college graduates at the bachelor's and master's degree level. The SDR further supplements SESTAT with the stock and inflow of U.S.-degreed doctoral level scientists and engineers.
SESTAT data are available for download or through the SESTAT Data Tool, which allows users to generate their own data tables.
