Summary:
This table shows that overall trends in the number of sociology graduate school enrollments increased for most groups of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, although the number of whites declined slightly from 1990. The percent increases were especially steep for minority groups (especially among Hispanics), although their numbers remain small. Over the 1990s, there was a decline in the number of temporary residents enrolled in sociology graduate programs, although their numbers have increased in past years.
