The latest report, Graduate Enrollment and Degrees: 2001 to 2011, includes more than 100 figures and data tables, as well as interpretative text, on applications for admission to graduate school, first-time and total graduate student enrollment, and graduate degrees and certificates conferred. Current year and trend data are presented by broad field, gender, race/ethnicity, citizenship, attendance status, institutional characteristics, and more.
