<p>The key findings of the 1990-91 Taulbee Survey Report describing the results of a study of the Forsythe list of computing departments are presented. The Forsythe list enumerates all departments in the US and Canada that grant PhDs in computing, specifically in computer science (CS) and computer engineering (CE). Completed in December 1991, the latest survey concerns the production and employment of PhDs who graduated in 1990-91 and the faculty of PhD-granting computing departments during the 1991-92 academic year. The results indicate that the production of PhDs in CS departments increased significantly; the number of faculty in PhD-granting departments leveled off for the first time in two decades; those departments employed more full professors than assistant professors for another first; and minority figures persisted on the low side.</p>
