Sources: The Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) annually collects data from graduate schools through the CGS/GRE Survey of Graduate Enrollment and Degrees. The responding institutions included CGS members and non-members in the state, and the information displayed was compiled from these institutions’ survey responses. Sources: The workforce data come from the National Science Foundation's (NSF) 2016 Science and Engineering Indicators State Data Tool and the 2016 Science and Engineering State Profiles. The data reflect total individuals in science and engineering occupations with doctoral or master’s and undergraduate degrees. “Other Degrees” combines master’s and undergraduate degrees as NSF only disaggregates doctoral degrees.
