    Physics Major unemployment rate

    _ Physics All Majors
    Unemployed %5 %9
    Minimum Wage %2 %4
    All Others %93 %86
    More: Unemployment for all Majors *** not counting stay at home parents *** not counting those currently in grad school

    Are things going well in Physics?

    Going Well %80
    Not Going Well %20
    More: All Majors Satisfaction ??? This is a social "life satisfaction" question. Overall, would people who graduated with a degree in Physics say that their life is going well? It could be interpreted in terms of stress, salary, long hours, future prospects, etc. *** not counting those currently in grad school

    Graduates who stayed in Physics

    Still in Field %65
    Got out %35
    More: All Majors Still in field ??? A high "got out" percentage can be interpreted a couple of ways -- for instance, perhaps the major is a great stepping stone to becoming a totally different career -- like a doctor. Or perhaps the jobs one gets with the major just aren't that great. *** not counting those currently in grad school
