We . . . conclude that students, professors, and mentors lack of accurate, timely, and accessible data on employment trends, careers and sources of student support is a serious flaw in our education system. (COSEPUP, 1995. page vi) 2. Marriage and family are the most important factors differentiating the labor force participation of male and female scientists and

engineers. (From Scarcity to Visibility, 2001. page 4) 3. The NRC doctoral program evaluations include flawed measures of educational quality. (page 1) Universities should track career the career outcomes of PhD recipients both directly upon program completion and at least 5-7 years following degree completion.
