Excerpt

The size and adequacy of the federal government's workforce for carrying out scientific,technical,engineering,and mathematics (STEM) activities are recurring concerns in many policy circles.This report presents the results of a study that examined the current federal STEM workforce.The authors assess whether personnel shortages or other deficiencies in the federal STEM workforce may be imminent, examine legislation and programs implemented in the past to identify measures that might be instituted now,and explore the data that the federal government needs to collect to monitor this issue adequately.

The research for this study was sponsored by the Office of Science and Technology Policy.This report should be of interest to the science and technology policy community,science and math educators,and students assessing alternative training and career paths.
