A Data-Based Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs in the United States, 2005-2006 Version 1


The data, collected for the 2005-2006 academic year from more than 5,000 doctoral programs at 212 universities, covers 62 fields of study. Included for each program are such characteristics as faculty publications, grants, and awards; student GRE scores, financial support, and employment outcomes; and program size, time to complete degree, and faculty composition. Measures of faculty and student diversity are also included. Data was collected to assess the quality and effectiveness of doctoral programs based on measures important to faculty, students, administrators, funders, and other stakeholders. The dataset enables university faculty, administrators, and funders to compare, evaluate, and improve programs, while prospective students can use the data to help identify programs best suited to their needs. ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Created variable labels and/or value labels.; Standardized missing values.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.. Research doctoral institutions in the United States. 2013-01-04 Updates were made to Parts 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7 to add value and variables labels that were missing in the first release.
