Figure 6

Alumni doctoral degree fields were standardized according to the main program groups defined within NCES' Biological and Biomedical Sciences instructional programs. The relative percentage of alumni within each degree field entering into tenure-track positions is shown. The 95% confidence intervals for the binomial proportion are shown here. *, the main NCES program group is 'Biomathematics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology;' 'Biostatistics' was substituted for 'Biomathematics' and 'Bioinformatics' within the title because nearly all alumni in this category possessed a degree in statistics or biostatistics.
