In December, 2019 (which feels like a decade ago), I had just wrapped up my degree in Neuroscience and wanted to see where I stood alongside all the other college graduates of the year. I came up with a set of waffle charts showing the number of graduates in several different categories but decided not to publish them.
Well, I’ve changed my mind. No longer will they sit in a file on my computer. Here is my place in the US Education Data.
First, I wanted to see myself compared with the other 123 UT graduating neuroscience bachelors.
Here I am am next to all US neuroscience bachelors.
I can’t fit any longer, but here are UT and US neuroscience bachelors next to the other US bioscience bachelors.
And finally, for the broadest perspective of the bunch, here are all the US bachelors next to other degree recipients (Phd, Ma, certification etc.).
And that’s before getting to one billion Americans!
Hope you enjoyed. You can find the code here.
