  • Stay Rates of Foreign Doctorate Recipients from U.S. Universities Source: Stay Rate Publications Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education Science Education Programs http://orise.orau.gov/sep/pubs.htm Study Characteristics This series of studies uses income and Social Security tax records to estimate the proportion of foreign doctorate recipients from U.S. universities who stayed in the United States after graduation. Survey Dates: 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003 Field Specifications: Life science (exclusive of agricultural science) Notes: Temporary residents earning a doctoral degree in one of the sciences were identified from the NSF Survey of Earned Doctorates for the years of interest. Survey staff then prepared a diskette containing the birth years and Social Security numbers of these individuals for matching with tax records. The stay rate is the proportion in a group that was recorded by the Social Security Administration to have paid either Federal income taxes and/or Social Security taxes on at least $5,000 in earnings. Due to confidentiality concerns, only aggregate summaries are produced. Contact Information: Michael G. Finn Science and Engineering Education Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education
