NOTES: Physical sciences include earth, atmospheric, and ocean sciences; physics; astronomy; and chemistry. Data
on race/ethnicity were collected on broad fields of study only until 1994; therefore, 1994 data could not be adjusted to
the exact field taxonomies used by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The primary difference between 1994 and
later years is that history was included in social sciences in 1994 but is included in non-S&E from 1995 on. Data are
not available for 1999.
