This study presents data obtained from American graduate students on their social and educational backgrounds, as well as their degree and career plans. Questions probed the respondents' opinions on their institutions and departments, educational policy in general, and broad social and political issues. The 32,963 respondents were weighted to 1,005,834. Demographic variables cover age, sex, race, religion, family income, citizenship, and parents' levels of education and occupations.
