ZIP Code Tabulations as a Tool for Long-Range Planning in Commuter Colleges.
Wenzel, Gustave G.
Educational institutions in major urban areas often require student residency data more precise than that provided by census, general survey, or enrollment statistics. By using zip code information furnished with student addresses, these data can be made easily accessible through computer retrieval. Miami-Dade Junior College (Florida) has found the following uses for such information: the development of population-student ratios for application to population trends; the identification of existing and future areas of student concentration in order to properly locate new institutional sites; anticipating student course and program participation to plan new programs or alter existing ones; and the projection of effect of new campus construction on enrollment at existing campuses.
