Ontario Universities Statistical Compendium, 1970-71 to 1979-80. Part A, Macro-Indicators.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
Macro-indicators concerning finances of Ontario universities for 1970-71 to 1979-80 are considered, along with supporting data that might be used to generate such indicators, and complementary analyses that might be used to enhance understanding of both indicators and data. Operating revenue in constant dollars has been identified per full-time-equivalent (FTE) student and per basic income unit (BIU). Viewed over time, and at the system level, this indicator measures the gains or losses in resources available to universities as a function of those holding professorial rank. The percentage distribution of operating expenditures by Ontario universities is analyzed. Eight interprovincial comparisons are identified: provincial operating grants (including student aid) as a percent of provincial gross general (government) expenditure; provincial operating grants per $1,000 of provincial personal income; and total university operating expenditure as a percent of provincial gross domestic product. Complementary analyses that provide additional information concern: percentage analysis of operating revenues by source of revenue, ratios of nonsalary expenditures to operating expenditures, ratios of BIU's to eligible FTE enrollment, and student/faculty ratios.
