The Statistical Research Center collects, analyzes and disseminates data on education, careers, and diversity in physics, astronomy and other physical sciences. We are your source for reliable data on:
- Enrollments and degrees at all levels of education in physics, astronomy and related fields from high school through the PhD.
- Demographic profiles of physics faculty in high schools, 2-year colleges, 4-year colleges, and universities.
- Common careers of physicists and astronomers with bachelor's degrees, master's degrees or PhDs.
- Workforce dynamics including unemployment, underemployment, staff turnover, retirement and the number of positions available.
- Issues that cut across education and employment such as the representation of women and minorities in physics and related fields.
We also contract with professional societies to carry out surveys on topics of particular concern to their organizations, including:
- Profiles of professional society membership.
- Studies of the benefits of society membership.
- Salaries and employment prospects in specific fields.
