The American Geosciences Institute has tracked enrollments and degrees granted in the geosciences over time. AGI collects the data in October and November of each year for the prior academic year. The latest year data should be considered preliminary as programs do report revisions for their data up to two years following their initial report.
The AGI Workforce Program collects data on geoscience programs globally. This data is used by a wide range of individuals and groups, including academic programs, government agencies, companies, and publishers. We rely on the collaboration of the geoscience programs to maximize the quality of this data. Below you will find some of the most frequently request data with an accompanying PDF for use in presentations and reports with proper credit.
The AGI Workforce Program was built on data collection and analysis. Since 1955, AGI has maintained databases of academic geoscience programs in the United States, and more recently, globally. In addition, the Workforce Program also conducts regular surveys on geoscience graduates and reports on the state of the geoscience workforce biennially. We also provide baseline data from federal and industry sources on general interest items, such as salaries and employment levels.
