Survey of Earned Doctorates

NIFA partners with the National Science Foundation to conduct the Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED). This survey is designed to obtain data on the number and characteristics of individuals receiving research doctoral degrees from U.S. institutions.

The results are used to assess trends in Ph.D. production. This information is used frequently by educational and labor force planners within the federal government and in academia.
