<p>Significant findings from the 1988-9 Taulbee report, which is based on a December 1989 survey of the Forsythe list of computing departments, are summarized. The survey focuses on the production and employment of PhDs who graduated in 1988-89 and the faculty of PhD-granting computing departments during the 1989-90 academic year. Among the findings is an 8% increase in PhDs granted. Of the 625 new PhDs, none are black, six are Hispanic, and 87 are women. The 129 CS departments have 2550 faculty members (an increase of 123, or nearly one per department) and reported hiring 204 faculty and losing 161.</p>
