Abstract:

NOTE: This is an R Shiny visualization.


In 2016, 54,904 PhD students received their doctorate degrees in fields ranging from History to Health Sciences to Engineering to Psychology. But where do these graduates go after spending an average of 6 years in graduate school? What kinds of careers do they pursue (academia, industry, government, nonprofit) and what are their salaries in these different sectors? In this data visualization, I explore the postgraduate pathways that doctorates pursue, their median salaries in the workforce, as well as patterns in the number of doctorate degrees received across the years.
