Ph.D. Completion and Attrition: Analysis of Baseline Program Data from the Ph.D. Completion Project

Analysis of Baseline Demographic Data from the Ph.D. Completion Project

In December 2007, CGS published "Ph.D. Completion and Attrition: Analysis of Baseline Program Data from the Ph.D. Completion Project."

This is the first in a series of CGS monographs from the CGS Ph.D. Completion Project. It presents analyses of the program completion and attrition data submitted to CGS by 30 Research and Project Partners participating in Phase I of the project. Completion and attrition rates are presented for cohorts of students entering Ph.D. programs in academic years 1992-93 through 2000-01. The analysis delineates completion and attrition rates by program, broad field, cohort size, and type of institution. Components of early attrition (years 1-4) are also discussed.
