We can glimpse the overall effect in Table 3, which shows changes in federal funding from 1970 to 1993. Overall, funding levels peaked in 1989. The end of the Cold War brought down defense R&D expenditures. A very few other areasnotably natural resources and environmental R&Dhave shown continuing increases since then. Space research and technology R&D has actually shown some recovery from a nadir at about half its 1993 funding level. Similar changes are under way in Canada. In March 1995 Science reported that Canada's latest budget proposal called for a broad spectrum of cuts in research funding over the next three years: 17 percent for the National Research Council; 13 percent for the National Science and Engineering Council; and 12 percent for the Social Science and Humanities Research Council.

3 percent. The areas with the greatest gains include those associated with health care and the environment, including positions in the Department of Energy. What's the story for women and minorities? Despite years of effort, there remains a "pipeline" problem. 5 percent of doctorates. The numbers have improved over recent decades, with one groupAsian-Americansgaining much more rapidly than blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans. Nevertheless, whites still dominate science and engineeringholding 90 percent of the jobs in these fieldseven more than they do the general workforce, where they hold 80 percent of the jobs.

All of these affect career choices, and all play a part when someone who has chosen the broad field of science narrows that choice down to mathematics, engineering, chemistry, biology, and so on. People choose a field of science in which to workor a theater in which to do battleafter exposure, in high school or college courses or in part-time jobs, to several possibilities. One field proves most interesting, or it promises a more thorough use of one's talents, or it offers more (or less) exposure to people or machines or wildlife.
