Postsecondary Education in Indiana: Enrollments and Educational Attainments: Part I of a 4-Part Study. Manpower Report 80-2.
Lisack, J. P.
As part of a larger study, data concerning enrollment trends in Indiana high schools, colleges, and universities are examined, and the Indiana college attendance rate and scores on the College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test are compared with those of other midwestern states and with national averages. Additionally, the levels of education attained by Indiana adults are compared with those of other states' and with national averages. Population trends of the state and nation are compared, and Indiana's population is projected up to the year 2000. Information was obtained from public, private, and proprietary institutions authorized to offer degree/credit programs. Information was obtained on enrollees (beginners) as follows: (1) those who graduated from Indiana high schools in December 1978 or by June of 1979; (2) those who graduated from Indiana high schools in any year previous to 1978-79; and (3) those who came from any source other than Indiana high schools (e.g., out-of-state or foreign students). A summary of the findings, and statistical data, charts, and graphs are included. Among the findings were that 83 percent of new enrollees came from Indiana and that the on-going college attendance rate in 1979-80 for Indiana's high school class of 1978-79 was 45.9 percent. (SW)
