Revisiting the STEM Workforce: A Companion to Science and Engineering Indicators 2014 (NSB-2015-10)

DESCRIPTION

The condition of the U.S. science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce figures prominently in discussions of national competitiveness, education policy, innovation, and even immigration. But the relevant analyses and conversations are hindered by differing understandings of the composition and character of the STEM workforce and the varied, dynamic career pathways enabled by STEM knowledge and skills.
The National Science Board (NSB, Board) examined recent STEM workforce studies and debates, consulted numerous experts, and explored data in our 2014 Science and Engineering Indicators report to develop insights that could facilitate more constructive discussions about the STEM workforce and inform decision makers.
