### Studies, Reports

- Many types of statistics are available from the National Science Foundation, for example, how many women earn baccalaureates in mathematics each year. These and other information are published biennially in two reports: Science and Engineering Indicators and Women, Minorities and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering, both of which are available from the National Science Foundation’s statistics website.
- AMS survey of mathematics and statistics departments is conducted annually. This includes faculty salaries and demographics, PhDs granted, and graduate enrollment.
- CBMS survey of mathematics and statistics departments is conducted every five years. This includes faculty demographics, undergraduate course enrollments, and number of mathematics and statistics baccalaureates granted.
