description:
The agency initially created these registers to be a ready source of specialized personnel during a national emergency. As the value of the data for statistical purposes was recognized, the main purpose of maintaining the registers shifted to providing a source of statistical information on scientific and engineering personnel. The National Registers were a major source of data for studies related to the development of national science policy, and provided information to Congress, agencies of the executive branch, State governments, private industry, and institutions of higher education. This series contains data compiled from social and natural scientists who responded to survey questionnaires sent to them by professional organizations. The content differs somewhat from year to year, but each record includes name, specific institution, sex, age, educational background, employment specialty, job function, income, language ability, citizenship, and professional organization memberships. Other information includes place of birth (after 1966), social security number (after 1964), employment status (after 1958), government sponsorship (after 1962), Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (after 1958), and city and State (after 1964). Each professional organization introduced its own questions in addition to those asked of all respondents. This data comprises government records extracted from the Archival Research Catalog (ARC). See the ARC catalog entry for this series for more information on this data and how to order it.
