Social Science Doctorates

Via Inside Higher Ed I learned of a new government report on “U.S. Doctorates in the 20th Century.” This report updates the Ph.D. section of the data I discussed earlier in a post entitled “Trends in Anthropology,” providing the latest data on how many Anthropology degrees have been served up by American Universities since the 1920s. I extracted the social science data from the appendix and posted it on Google Docs, in case anyone is interested. Not much to say except that there are an awful lot of people getting Anthropology Ph.D.s!
