It's not relevant to the question, which is whether the US is graduating enough people each year trained in math well enough to major in a STEM major.
Again look at my post

and see how it is not relevant that those of you who think the US system is not doing so have a lot of explaining to do.

We will have more results early next year (a report will be released later this year, but the dataset will not be ready till January I believe).
