Employment Changes Since 1993

This chapter examines changes in the employment situation of science and engineering doctorates between April 1993 and April 1995, including changes in status, employer, and job. Under examination here are those science and engineering doctorates employed in April 1995. Of these, 74 percent were employed in 1993[8] and did not change either employer or job in the interim. Ten percent changed both employer and job, while 5 percent changed employer only and another 7 percent changed job only. Five percent reported that they were not employed in April 1993 (see Table 33).
