Opening Fall Enrollment in New Jersey Colleges and Universities: Fall 1980 and Recent Trends. Data Brief Series, Volume 1, Number 1.
Data on fall 1980 enrollments in New Jersey colleges and universities are presented, along with comparisons between 1979 and 1980 fall enrollments and an analysis of enrollment trends over the past 10 years. Total fall 1980 headcount enrollment, both graduate and undergraduate, increased by 2.5 percent statewide over fall 1979. This growth indicates a continuation in the trend of slowly increasing enrollments over the past 10 years. While community colleges increased in enrollment by 6.6 percent, public four-year colleges declined by 0.3 percent, and enrollments at independent institutions increased by 2 percent over 1979 levels. The 1980 data show that differential growth rates between full-time and part-time students are continuing. Part-time students have grown as a proportion of total enrollments at both public four-year institutions and in the independent sector. The number of women attending college in New Jersey has grown steadily over the past decade. Data on full-time and part-time undergraduates are shown both for the United States as a whole and for New Jersey, and by sector for the 10-year period. Summary data are presented on undergraduate and graduate enrollments by sex, both full-time and part-time. The data for individual institutions and sector totals are also presented. (SW)
