Five-Year Credit Enrollment Projections by Age Cohort Groups: Fall Semesters, 1982-1986.
Quinley, John W.; And Others
A study was conducted to project enrollment figures by age cohort groups at Harford Community College (HCC) for the period 1982 through 1986. Projections were obtained by determining the ratio of the students enrolled at HCC to the number of persons living in Harford County through an analysis of historical data detailing college and county population parameters. Fall 1981 figures were used as the basis for enrollment projections by credit hours carried, sex, full-time equivalents (FTE's), and total headcount. Projections for the 1982-1986 period included the following: (1) the student headcount would rise by 7.3% between 1981 and 1986; (2) female students would continue to represent about 60% of the student body with their numbers increasing by 6.2% compared to 5.7% for males; (3) part-time students would continue to form about 70% of the student population, growing by 9.4% while the number of full-time students would increase by 2.3%; (4) student numbers in the age groups 17-19 and 31-35 would decline and those for age groups 20-25, 26-30, 36-40, and 41 and over would increase; and (5) FTE's in 1986 would represent a 5.2% increase over the 1981 figure. Detailed tables provide actual headcount for 1978 through 1981 and projected figures for 1982 through 1986 with respect to total, male, female, and full-/part-time headcount and total, full-time, and part-time FTE's. Appendices include interim and updated projections of population trends, HCC's registrar's report on 1978-81 enrollments, and methodological notes. (HB)
