Berrier, R. Michael; O'Connor, Linda
Statistics and analyses of the 1979 opening fall enrollment in New Jersey colleges and universities are presented. The overall 1.4 percent increase in New Jersey is below the national average and below the previous year's statewide increase. However, this increase is greater than in New York or Connecticut. In two-year colleges the 5.7 percent growth is above the national averages, with public community colleges growing more than twice as fast as junior colleges. The part-time student population growth is below the national rate. Universities and other four-year colleges show a slight decline, contrasted with a small national increase. There are slightly more women enrolled in New Jersey than in the nation, proportionately, and more are in public than private colleges. Most are part-time students. First-time enrollment of women has increased; that of men has declined. Both summary and detailed statistical charts are included, with data given for individual institutions as well as institution types. The summary section includes some analysis. (MSE)
