* From 1982-2000, the racial categories used in the Survey of Earned Doctorates included "Asian and Pacific Islander." In 2001, the survey was revised and "Asian" and "Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander” became separate categories. For the purposes of reporting, Native Hawaiians are included in the "Other" category.
