About the NRC Study   The National Research Council (NRC) has reported the results of its latest project to assess U.S. research doctorate  programs. This is the most comprehensive survey of research doctorate programs in the United States.  The NRC has  reported data for 5000 programs at 212 different institutions across 62 fields of study.  Each participating university  provided data at an institutional level, at the program level and at the faculty level. Additionally, students in five selected  fields were invited to complete questionnaires regarding their programs.    The assessment offers data for each program on 20 characteristic variables:      Publications per allocated faculty member    Citations per publication    Percent faculty with grants    Percent faculty Interdisciplinary    Percent nonAsian minority faculty    Percent female faculty    Awards per allocated faculty    Average GREQ    Percent 1styr. students with full support    Percent 1styr. students with external funding 
 Percent nonAsian minority students    Percent female students    Percent international students    Average PhDs 2002 to 2006    Percent completing within 6 years    Time to degree    Percent students in academic positions    Student work space    Health insurance    Number of student activities offered
   The assessment also illustrates how the data can be used to rank the quality of programs based on the importance of  particular characteristics to various users. It does not include an authoritative declaration of the 'best programs' in given  fields, as the study committee concluded that no single such ranking can be produced in an unambiguous and rigorous  way. Rather, to illustrate how the data can be used to assess and compare the quality of programs, the report offers five  sets of rankings of programs in each field. These illustrative rankings should not be interpreted as definitive conclusions  about the relative quality of doctoral programs, nor are they endorsed as such by the National Research Council. Rather,  they demonstrate how the data can be used to rank programs based on the importance of particular characteristics to  various users  in this case, to faculty at participating institutions.     The approach used to generate the illustrative rankings incorporates both data on program characteristics and faculty  values. For each program, the study analyzed data on 20 characteristics, "weighing" the data according to the  characteristics valued most by faculty in that field. The rankings are given in broad ranges rather than as single numbers,  to reflect some of the uncertainties inherent in any effort to rank programs by quality.     The full set of illustrative rankings includes overall rankings based on weights of characteristic variables determined from  a direct survey that asked faculty to rate the importance of the 20 different program characteristics in determining the  quality of a program (S weights).  In addition, a second set of rankings is based on an indirect way of determining the  importance faculty attach to various characteristics. First, groups of randomly selected faculty were asked to rate the  quality of a sample of representative programs in their field. Based on the sample program ratings, weights were  assigned to each of the 20 characteristics using statistical techniques (R weights).  Additional rankings are based on  research activity, student support and outcomes and diversity of the academic environment.
