The Taulbee Survey is the principal source of information on the enrollment, production, and employment of Ph.D.s in computer science and computer engineering (CS & CE) and in providing salary and demographic data for faculty in CS & CE in North America. Statistics given include gender and ethnicity breakdowns.

Conducted each fall since 1974, the survey in general covers the preceding academic year. Faculty salary data, however, are for the current year. The survey has always had an excellent response rate--a fact which we believe lends great credibility to the result.

Preliminary results are made available in mid-December only to survey respondents. Respondents and CRA member departments receive the final results in mid-February.


CRA should be commended, by the way, for having the best workforce statistics in all of science.

Bachelor's degree data are released in March on this website. The final results are published in their entirety in Computing Research News and placed online in May.

The survey is named after Orrin E. Taulbee, University of Pittsburgh, who conducted these surveys from 1974-1984 for the Computer Science Board (the predecessor organization to the Computing Research Association). Thanks to the people who gather and submit departmental information each year, whose time and effort make it possible for us to compile these statistics.
