New Additions to the APA Science Staff
What is CPWAR?
New Additions to the APA Science Staff!
We are pleased to announce that, earlier this year, both the APA Library and Archives and the Center for Psychology Workforce Analysis and Research (CPWAR) have moved to within the purview of the Science Directorate. What does this mean? For readers of Psychological Science Agenda this means that occasional articles from these offices will appear in the newsletter so be sure to look for them in the future.

The Center for Psychology Workforce Analysis and Research (CPWAR) collects, analyses, and disseminates information relevant to psychology’s workforce and education system. This office recently became part of the Science Directorate.
The CPWAR staff routinely conducts national surveys of recent doctorate recipients, graduate departments of psychology, and those in the workforce to provide information to students, professionals, and the public regarding graduate school debt, starting and eventual salaries of psychologists, and characteristics of those in various work settings.
Beyond our primary data efforts, we also obtain data from and collaborate with national agencies (NSF, Department of Education, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Commission of Professionals in Science and Technology, etc.) to provide the latest reliable national level data at regional and national conferences, publications, and our website. We also work closely and often partner with other psychology related organizations and entities (APPIC, NCSPP, COGDOP).
