Gender, Science, and the Federal Funding of Research

Elizabeth A. Moorhouse
Department of Economics, Lycoming College, PA, USA

Краткое описание

Using field-level data from the Survey of Earned Doctorates from 1974 to 2003, the author analyzes the impact of the federal government’s funding of research and development (R&D) within the science and engineering fields on the percentage of doctoral degree recipients who are able to secure employment positions following graduation. After controlling for labor market conditions unique to this specialized labor pool, the results indicate that the percentage of male and female doctoral graduates securing employment increases in similar magnitudes as a result of this R&D funding allocated by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health; however, the R&D funds allocated by more mission-oriented agencies provide little help for these employment seekers. These differences may be attributed to the allocation methods used by the various agencies.
