STEM Significance: Career Stability and Economic Development

  • According to the Washington-based Center for Political and Economic think tank, the U.S. workforce could employ as many as 140,000 additional Black and Latino college graduates in STEM fields annually if the gap in college completion by Blacks and Latinos closed to roughly match that of the White and Asian student graduation rates.
  • According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the median income for Blacks is $32,229 and $ 38,624 for Latinos, almost $20,000 less than Whites; but for Latinos and Blacks in STEM careers, the median income is $75,000 which is only about $10,000 less than Whites.
