California College-Going Rates, 1982 Update. Commission Report 83-32.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
Trend data on college-going rates in California are considered in this 1984 update. Enrollment rates since 1974 and changes in rates experienced by major segments of higher education and by counties are examined. The information also provides a basis for analyzing the college-going rates of men and women and of several ethnic minority groups, compared with their representation among high school graduates. Consideration is given to statewide high school graduation and college-going trends, and participation rates for the University of California, California State University, California community colleges, and independent colleges and universities. Differences in enrollment rates by sector for California's 51 counties are compared for 1974-1982. Statistical tables are provided on: the ethnic distribution of 1981 graduates of public California high schools; 1982 first-time freshmen at the University of California, the California State University, and the California Community Colleges by county and sex; and the flow of community college transfer students to different colleges/sectors for 1982. It was found that statewide college-going rates did not increase between fall 1981 and 1982 in three of the four segments of California higher education. (SW)
