Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
Macro-indicators that can measure the resources available to the Ontario university system are described. Supporting data (1970-1982) are presented that might be used to generate the indicators are also presented, along with complementary analyses that may promote understanding of the indicators and data. Operating revenue in constant dollars per full-time equivalent student and per basic instructional unit is a significant macro-indicator, which over time measures the gains or losses in resources available to universities as a function of teaching activity. Additional macro-indicators include: ratios of research expenditures to full-time faculty, internal distribution of funds by the Ontario universities, and interprovincial comparisons of higher education expenditures. Specific indicators that can be used for interprovincial comparisons include: provincial operating grants per student and per capita, provincial operating grants plus student aid per capita, provincial operating grants plus fees per student, and total operating income per student, and provincial operating grants plus student aid as a percentage of provincial gross general expenditure.
