Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/wmpd/ This timely report from the National Science Foundation (NSF) provides "statistical information about the participation of women, minorities, and persons with disabilities in science and engineering education and employment." This most recent iteration of the report was released in July 2012, and it includes data sets, technical notes, citations, and several interactive features. First-time visitors should take a look at the "Digest 2011" for up-to-date statistical visualizations of themes that include Employment Status, Occupation, Academic Employment, and Field of Degree. The How Do I? will help visitors learn how to view data by grouping, contact the author, and also sign up to be notified about new data sets.
