National Research Council: A Data-Based Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs (2010)

On September 28, 2010 the National Research Council (NRC) released the results of a data-driven study of the quality and characteristics of selected research doctorate programs in the U.S.

The NRC study was designed to help universities improve the quality of doctoral programs through benchmarking; provide potential students and the public with accessible, readily available information on doctoral programs nationwide; and enhance the nation's overall research capacity.

More than 5,000 doctoral programs offered at 212 universities across the United States were included in the study. Based on NRC guidelines, 41 doctoral programs at the University of Kansas were included in the assessment.

The final report, study methodology, and data tables in Excel can be accessed here:
