The kingdom of biology has grown to become a significant economic driver for the United States, but its role as a critical player in our lives may be shrinking, according to a new study.
As an estimated 7.5 percent of the world’s population, scientists and engineers are the top earners in the United State, according the most recent US Census Bureau data.
But according to the Kingdom report released Monday, that number has declined in recent years, with only 2 percent of Americans earning at least a bachelor’s degree.
As a result, a growing number of Americans have opted to pursue other types of science, according a new report from the University of Michigan.
According to the study, there are more Americans who are pursuing a bachelor of science in biology than in any other field, with a median of a bachelor in biology from 2012 to 2014.
That’s up from the 9 percent of bachelor’s degrees in science from 2010 to 2014 and just under half the 7 percent of science degrees from the 1950s to 1960s.
In addition, there’s an increased concentration of bachelor of arts degrees among Americans than in other advanced countries, the report says.
In the US, the median bachelor’s of arts degree is from a liberal arts college.
The report cites a 2015 Brookings Institution study that found that American women have been taking higher-paying jobs in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), but that this shift is not due to a gender wage gap.
Rather, the researchers argue that women have found it more difficult to secure a STEM degree.
The study found that a significant proportion of female STEM graduates were from families with incomes that were less than $50,000.
The median income for STEM graduates was less than half that for women.
And the majority of STEM graduates who took an undergraduate degree in a STEM field, which includes technology, had at least some STEM experience, the study found.
While the report suggests that women are now working more in STEM fields, the number of STEM-related jobs in the US remains low.
The most recent figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that there were just under 13 million STEM jobs in 2014, compared with nearly 29 million jobs in 2000.
And there is a big gap between women and men in terms of STEM career paths.
While women make up over 80 percent of all STEM professionals in the U.S., they only make up 20 percent of STEM employees in STEM-intensive industries like engineering, technology and mathematics (STEM).
The number of women working in science and engineering occupations has also been on the decline.
In 1970, the Bureau, the National Academy of Sciences, and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy all found that there was an average of 2.5 women working full-time in STEM occupations, compared to an average 4.2 women in STEM professions.
And women are not the only demographic group to have been falling out of STEM jobs.
A study from the American Association of University Women found that only about 25 percent of men with bachelor’s or master’s degrees held those degrees.
The decline in STEM jobs has also come as technology companies have shifted their focus away from engineering to other areas.
The American Association for University Women report found that the proportion of women in engineering is lower now than it was in the mid-1990s, but the proportion that hold engineering degrees is also lower.
“There’s no question that the STEM workforce is shrinking, but there are also fewer STEM jobs than there were 30 years ago,” said Elizabeth Brown, the director of the National Center for Science Education at the University at Albany.
“The problem is that STEM-focused companies have been slow to adapt to this.
They’ve been reluctant to hire more women in technology roles.
That has been one of the major drivers for the shift away from STEM in the workplace.”
Brown said the study’s findings are important because they could help policymakers decide whether or not to take action.
“In the past, we’ve seen some really smart policy choices,” Brown said.
“But what’s important is to remember that the country is still recovering from the Great Recession.
And we need to make sure that we have a robust economy, which has the capacity to support the continued growth of the American economy.”
