Total Graduate Enrollment in Sociology, by Race and Ethnicity

Notes: Includes permanent residents enrolled for a master's or doctoral degree at a US institution, full- or part-time, whose race or ethnicity is known. Does not include students enrolled in joint sociology/anthropology programs. Beginning in 2000, "Asian or Pacific Islander" is the sum of two separate categories, Asian and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander. "More Than One Race" was first collected in 1994. Percent totals may not sum to 100 due to rounding.
