Table 1 Multiyear averages for diversity metrics in U.S. physics.

Each row’s entries show the percentage of the U.S. annual average in the second column. Data for the GRE-P are the average over test years 2009–2015; all others are the averages from 2009–2014 (20). We excluded data if an entry’s absolute number was 10 or less (indicated by asterisks) and excluded race categories “other,” “two or more,” and “no response.” F, female; M, male.
