Undergraduate Enrollment Projections for the State Universities of Alabama, 1981-1989.
Johnson, Kimble Leon
Full-time and part-time undergraduate enrollments in 15 public universities in Alabama were projected by sex for 1981-89. Additionally, state, regional, and national projections of undergraduate enrollments for the 1980s are made, based on a review of the literature. Alabama public high school graduates are projected in order to project full-time, first-time freshman enrollments, and a comparison is made of freshman enrollments by sex and total undergraduate enrollments. It is predicted that enrollments will remain relatively stable for 1981 and 1982 but will decline steadily after 1982, reaching a low of approximately 75,600 undergraduate students in 1985. This low will be approximately 6,000 students less than the 1980 figure, a decline to approximately seven percent. Beginning in 1986, enrollments will increase each year, reaching the 1980 figure again around 1988. While full-time enrollments, both male and female, will follow the pattern of total enrollments, part-time enrollments are not projected to decrease. Male part-time enrollments are expected to remain constant at approximately 7,000 each year while female part-time enrollments are forecast to increase at an average rate of approximately 300 each year. Four appendices provide supporting data from which all computations are made. Additionally, a bibliography and explanation of the research methodology are included. (SW)
