Research Doctorate Programs in the United States: Data Set (CD-ROM)


Research Doctorate Programs in the United States

Data Set (CD-ROM) (1995)

The National Research Council publication Research-Doctorate Programs in the United States: Continuity and Change contains a wealth of information on 3,634 programs in 41 fields at 274 universities that participated in a comprehensive study of the research-doctorate enterprise. Behind these data is a much larger information set containing details on:

  • Over 88,000 faculty members participating in the programs.
  • Approximately 1 million publication, citation, and research grant records of the faculty members.
  • Individual scores on the 16,000 questionnaires for the reputational survey of faculty quality and program effectiveness.
  • Data from a similar study in 1982.
  • And many variables not included in the published volume.

These data are now available on a CD-ROM. From the data, it is possible to analyze characteristics of the raters, reputational scores for a program under various constraints, and many other interesting aspects of the faculty, programs, and institutions in the study.

For flexibility and convenience, data on the CD-ROM are in both ANSI, as flat files, and in SAS format. Format: ISO 9660/PC, Mac, UNIX
