Figure C-3. Science and engineering bachelor's degrees as share of all bachelor's degrees awarded, by race/ethnicity: 2005.

NOTE: Percents refer to percentage of each racial/ethnic group earning degrees in a given field. Physical sciences include earth, atmospheric, and ocean sciences.

SOURCE: National Science Foundation, Division of Science Resources Statistics, special tabulations of U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, Completions Survey, 2005.

With the exception of Asians/Pacific Islanders, for whom almost half (48%) of all bachelor's degrees earned are in S&E, about one-third of all bachelor's degrees earned by each racial/ethnic group are in S&E.
