Abstract

The typical member of the group "Scientists and Engineers" (S/E)l in South Korea is a male, junior-college graduate in his late 20's to early 301s, who works for the most part in manufacturing. There are exceptions to this characterization, since females, who comprise less than six percent of scientists and engineers, are far more likely to be employed in services than in manufacturing, and are more likely to possess a four-year college degree or higher. Scientists and engineers are playing an increasingly important role in South Korea's economy, as the government has bolstered South Korea's research and development (RHD) capacity, a key component in efforts to increase the country's output of leading edge technologies.
