Abstract Title: The Demographics of Graduate Students in PER
Abstract: Statistical data on the numbers, demographics, and experiences of graduatestudents in physics are well documented. However, in these assessments one sub-field is often left out, physics education research (PER). Currently no data exists on the composition of students in PER. This includes the number of graduate students, the departments they are housed in, their gender, their race, their experiences and more. This talk will present the first empirical study focusing on the experiences and demographics of students in PER.
