Differences in Master's and Doctoral Enrollment in Science, Engineering, and Health in 2017
Graduate enrollment by degree level and field of study are available for the first time through the 2017 Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering (GSS). These new data show 649,112 graduate students were enrolled in SEH programs in 2017, with 58% pursuing master's degrees and 42% pursuing doctoral degrees. More graduate students were enrolled in science (415,568) than combined in engineering (165,581) and health (67,963). Enrollment in master's programs was seen for 77% of graduate students in health, 58% of graduate students in engineering, and 55% of graduate students in science. (Source:...

New podcast explores why 'statistically significant' is so misunderstood
(Taylor& Francis Group) It's a controversial topic. Probability values (p-values) have been used as a way to measure the significance of research studies since the 1920s, with thousands of researchers relying on them since. With this reliance, though, comes misunderstanding and, therefore, misuse.This misunderstanding is what the latest episode of the How Researchers Changed the World podcast explores, in conversation with statistician Ron Wasserstein.

Labelling Recall: Automation is the Answer
The heavy reliance that companies place on manual processes and disparate labeling systems is more times than not at the route of product recalls. In 2018 alone, labelling issues made up 9% of all medical device recall events, which comprised of the return of over a million units. For a business, the consequences are costly, with the average label change sitting at $350,000. However, despite the availability of automated technologies created to tackle these very issues, numerous companies still persevere with out-dated processes which leave labels exposed to error.
