Now in its 16th year of publication, ASTRA’s STEM on the Hill™ State STEM Report Cards series illustrates the importance of scientific and engineering research and STEM Education to state and local economies, job growth, innovation, competitiveness, our standard of living and U.S. national security. A variety of measurements, including data from ASTRA, the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME), MyCollegeOptions™ and key U.S. Government statistical sources provide context to these reports. These metrics help users compare their own state with others. Of note for our 2016 series is the addition of STEM Job categories, earnings and demographic data by state, as well as projections of STEM Job trends by state through 2025.
Please share these STEM Report Cards with elected representatives, community leaders and others concerned about technology-based economic development and a stronger society. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact ASTRA’s Dr. Robert Boege at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
