  1. Degree status is self-reported. Because many individuals list degrees in progress, figures include only those cases where the date of anticipated degree has passed (that is, up to and including 2009). Data reflect membership status on 12/31/2009. 
  2. Figures reflect the percentage of each sex holding a particular type of degree.
  3. Figures include doctoral students who report ABD status.
  4. This category includes cases where degree was not reported or highest degree was not clear.
