Latest Year Available: 2012

Microdata from the Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering are provided in the files below. Data are available for each survey year beginning with 1972.

The file organization makes each year's institution, school, and organizational unit data available in a single record. The files also allow researchers to link to other institutional data sources.

The file formats available for download vary according to data year. All data files are provided as compressed .zip files. Use an archive utility program that supports the .zip format to uncompress the files you download to your computer.

Detailed descriptions and instructions for the data files are provided below.

Because of the large number of columns in the Excel files, the data have been divided among three worksheets: Race, Support, and Postdoc_Nonfaculty Researcher (PD_NFR)
