Halstead, D. Kent; Hickson, Lenel
The 1978 supplement to the basic study, Higher Education Prices and Price Indexes, presents higher education price index data for fiscal years 1971 through 1978. A price index series measures the effects of price change, and price change only, on a fixed group of items. The indexes reported here measure price changes from 1967, the reference date. A brief description is given of the indexes: the Higher Education Price Index; Research and Development Index; Boeckh Construction Index; Capital Equipment Index; Construction and Equipment Index; and student charges data. Price trends are explained for these areas, and data tables contain indexes for each year in each category of item included in the composite index. (MSE)
