Some Selected Expenditure Characteristics of Non-Resident Students, New Mexico State University, 1967-68 Academic Year.
Mitchell, Glen H.
The purpose of this study was to examine the type and amount of expenditure made in New Mexico by full-time nonresident students attending New Mexico State University in the academic year 1967-68. A structured, nondisguised questionnaire was developed and administered to a sample of 108 students. The results indicated that an estimated $10,000,000 in the 1967-68 school year was added to the New Mexico economy by the 1,253 nonresident students, with the average student spending $3,306. Single students spent less than married ones and, with the exception of the sophomore year, expenditures tended to increase as the student proceeded through college. Female students spent slightly more than males, and graduate students significantly more than undergraduates. Although college students appeared to consider themselves a separate market, the expenditures showed a great deal of variation within all category patterns, except tuition and fees. (AF)
