After a brief narrative overview of trends, statistical tables are presented, including the following: enrollment forecasts for higher education in the state, enrollment forecasts and changes for public senior institutions, headcount enrollment, population trends statewide and in Harris County, enrollment rates for Harris County, the ratio of total to in-state enrollment for 1983, and community college enrollments. Enrollment forecasts for 1985, 1990, and 1995 are provided by type of institution and for the 37 public universities. Trends include the following: an annual average growth rate of about 1 percent is expected for higher education institutions; public community colleges are expected to grow at a slightly faster rate than the public universities during 1983-1990; between 1985 and 1990 the number of persons in the age cohort 15 to 29 will increase by only 1.12 percent, compared to an overall population increase of more than 11 percent; and the 20-24 year age cohort will actually decline in number, while the population aged 35 and over will continue to grow.
