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.
