Data are presented on a series of tables summarizing enrollment trends and the personal characteristics of the 19,359 regular students enrolled in credit programs at the Hawaii community colleges during Fall 1980. The tables cover: (1) headcount enrollment in regular credit and special programs; (2) headcount enrollment by campus for the years 1970 through 1980; (3) selected student characteristics (i.e., sex, educational objective, major, attendance status, semester hours taken, residence, tuition status, age, citizenship, marital status, and registration status); and (4) student profiles in terms of these characteristics for 1976 through 1980. The data provided indicate, among other findings, that the regularly enrolled students constituted 73% of the total Fall 1980 enrollment at the colleges. Approximately 50% of the students were female, and 51% were enrolled on a part-time basis. The average semester hours attempted by all students was 9.8, as compared to 10.0 in Fall 1979. Demographic data reveal that the median age of the students was 25.l years, that 90% of the students were United States citizens, and that 79% were unmarried. Liberal arts majors comprised 43% of the enrollments, while vocational education majors made up another 45%. Programs showing substantial enrollment increases from Fall 1979 included computer science, human services, and industrial education. (JP)
