The National Survey of College Graduates (NSCG), conducted by the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics within the National Science Foundation, provides data on the characteristics of the nation's college graduates, with a focus on those in the science and engineering workforce. This report contains technical documentation for the 2017 NSCG. For convenience, the report also links to NSCG data tables published in the Employment section of Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering (WMPD): 2019; the table numbers reflect the tables' location within that publication.
