less PhDs -- in general or just in the US?

Well, one more thing I found notable. According to this article the number of new Science PhDs per year is still falling in the US. I wonder if this means that they are falling in general or simply that a lot of the people that would have got them in the US are just not doing that, choosing to do it in their home countries or elsewhere. Considering that more than half the engineering PhDs in the US are from foreign-born students (as the article notes), even a small dip in that number (due to less travel, tighter immigration laws, whatever) would definitely be noticeable.
