Today’s Mathematics: Math jobs are becoming increasingly important for many of the nation’s youngest people, but they are not always the best career paths.
In fact, the majority of mathematics graduates are not in top mathematics jobs.
And that trend may be getting worse.
In the U.S., just under one in four graduates from math majors and computer science and engineering (CS&E) programs are now in jobs that require at least a bachelor’s degree.
This compares with just over one in five graduates of math and computer sciences (M.
Sc.) and engineering programs in 1980.
And the number of jobs requiring at least bachelor’s degrees in math has steadily declined since the late 1970s, when just under 50 percent of math graduates were in such jobs.
“When you look at the trends, the data shows that the math jobs that are currently in demand are not the ones that are most attractive,” said Mark Levey, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley.
“The ones that have the biggest payoffs are the ones with the highest salaries.”
Levey and his co-authors, a team of researchers from the University, University of Massachusetts and Rutgers University, examined data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Current Population Survey (CPS).
This survey collects data on the characteristics of U.N. workers.
The CPS provides a measure of the share of Americans ages 15 to 24 who hold a bachelor degree.
The researchers used that information to create a set of rankings of math careers, based on a broad measure of what mathematicians earn.
The rankings included a “pay gap” indicator, which ranks how much a particular job pays compared to other occupations.
For example, a job that pays more than $70,000 a year may be a good fit for someone with a bachelor of science degree, but a job in math is not.
“That’s where the pay gap comes in,” said Levey.
“We found that the pay for math majors was relatively low.
But that pay gap disappeared in the 1980s and 90s.”
And the math gap has actually increased since the mid-1980s.
The gap between the salaries paid to mathematicians and other college graduates has grown from less than $20,000 in 2000 to more than half a million in 2010.
“A lot of people don’t realize that the majority [of mathematicians] are not paying much, but if you go back and look at other professions, the pay was much lower,” said Kevin R. Smith, an associate professor of economics at the Boston University School of Economics and a former deputy director of the Bureau in the U: Office of Management and Budget.
“You might be paying $30,000 more than you’re actually paying.
And if you’re paying a little more, that might not seem like a big difference, but when you’re spending a lot of money and you’re not earning a lot, that can make a big dent.”
This is the latest in a series of research papers that have shown that students who complete high school math have higher chances of finding jobs after graduation.
Levey said that the data showed that the most popular careers for mathematicians are those that require a bachelor or graduate degree.
But some jobs are also gaining in importance.
“There is an economic case for paying higher salaries to students who want to become computer scientists, or to people who want a career in math,” said Smith.
The average salary for a computer scientist in the United States is $69,700 a year.
But the average salary is only $45,200 in the state of California and $35,400 in New York City, according to a study published by the Brookings Institution.
And computer science jobs pay even less, according in part to the rising costs of education, which have not kept pace with rising computing power.
In 2015, the average graduate from a computer science major was earning $48,100, according the American Association of University Professors.
But computer scientists are getting a little bit older.
The median age of computer scientists was 33.5 in 2016, down from 35 in 1980, according data from Cornell University.
“These are jobs that people can’t just retire into,” said Michael Shuman, president of the American Mathematical Society.
“They have to go into the workforce and they have to learn a new skill that is required for the new profession.”
He said the average age of math grads is 28.3, down a few years from 29.2 in the mid 1990s.
Shuman said the rising cost of higher education has made it difficult for many people to find jobs in the mathematics and computer engineering fields.
The trend has been particularly worrisome for people in math programs.
“It has become increasingly hard for people who are trying to make it in the field to get an education, and this is something that is particularly important for mathematicicians,” said Shuman.
“For some of the younger mathematicians who are making the transition into computer science, there’s a lot
