How many theoretical physicists are there

  • #1
I'm not interested in becoming a theoretical physicist, that would be ridiculous, but I am curious to know how many TP are there, how many PHD degrees are awarded each year, how many applicants are there for a PHD per year and how many applicants are there for a masters in theoretical physicists versus how many are accepted.

Here are some general stats

There are about 1000-1500 physics Ph.D.'s awarded each year.
