2018 Planetary Science Survey

The aim of the 2018 Planetary Science Workforce Survey is to repeat the survey that was carried out in 2011 to evaluate how the workforce has evolved over 7 years. There are a few modifications to the survey to clarify the questions, but mostly we have tried to change as little as possible to allow a longitudinal study.

Part A: The first component of the project is a survey of US academic departments that include planetary science. Download UPDATED FORM.  Answers to Frequently-Asked-Questions – FAQ.

Part B: A survey to individual members of the AAS/DPS, the AGU Planetary Science Section, as well as attendees of the LPSC. In 2018 we aim to also include the GSA.
