Data relevant to science and engineering education, employment, and research

Anecdotal evidence can often serve as a basis for an opinion on the state of science and engineering in the US and abroad. While that evidence is valuable, it is not necessarily representative of national treends. Fortunately, the US government has collected useful information relevant to education, research, and employment within the science and engineering communities and presented it in a series of annual reports.


One such report is Science and Engineering Indicators, most recently published in 2006. More statistical reports are availabe on the NSF Division of Science Resources Statistics website.

These reports, in conjunction with insight and appropriate intepretation, provide a good basis for discussions on the future of engineering education within (and outside) the iMechanica community.
