NSF Releases 2019 Report on Underrepresented Groups in Science and Engineering

The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) National Center of Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES) released its 2019 Biennial Report on Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering. The report discusses trends for women and minorities underrepresented in Science and Engineering education and employment, breaking down the data by discipline - grouping psychology, biological sciences, and social sciences. The report states that continuing disparities “may be rooted in differences in precollege course taking, participation in Science & Engineering higher education, and overall educational attainment.”
