CGS' Graduate Enrollment and Degrees report, published annually since 1986, presents the findings of the CGS/GRE Survey of Graduate Enrollment and Degrees, a joint project of the Council of Graduate Schools and the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) Board.
The latest report, Graduate Enrollment and Degrees: 2003 to 2013, 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.
