Since 1955, AGI has collected data about the human resources of the U.S. geoscience community. The central component of this effort has been the ongoing Directory of Geoscience Departments publication, now in its 48th edition. Additionally, AGI has collected data on the supply and demand of geoscientists, and works with other organizations and government agencies to ensure that the health of the profession is understood.
