SINOPSIS

This study builds on previous research by identifying the undergraduate institutions of U.S.-born citizens who earned their doctorates in chemistry between 1975 and 1992. The analysis for the study is based on data from the National Research Council's Doctorate Records File. Special tabulations for this research resulted in data on 22,155 U.S.-born chemists. The findings reveal striking race/ethnic and gender differences in baccalaureate origins.
