Engineering and science doctorate recipients in the United States from 1957 to 2017

The graph below (link) shows the number of science and engineering doctorate recipients in the United States from 1957 to 2017. The number has increased from 8,611 in 1957 to 54,664 in 2017, a 6.3x increase.

Over the same time, the US population increased from 172M to 325M in 2017 (link), or by 1.9x. 

I hope they all found the right place to apply their skills and knowledge.
