For the 2006 and 2008 Characteristics of Recent Science and Engineering Graduates, several science and engineering (S&E)-related occupations were incorrectly classified as non-S&E occupations. Tables 1−6, 35, 36, 53, and 54 and their corresponding standard error tables (tables B-1−B-6, B-35, B-36, B-53, and B-54) have been replaced with corrected versions.
