These two research monographs profile fall 1991 and spring 1992 Oklahoma City Community College (OKCCC) students, respectively, comparing currently enrolled students to those from previous semesters. Each report provides a short narrative summary of findings and four data tables, presenting longitudinal enrollment figures beginning in spring 1986 (for the 1991 report), and in spring 1988 (for the 1992 report). Table I aggregates data by gender, full-/part-time status, new/returning/graduate status, marital status, average age, ethnicity, and reason for attending OKCCC. Table II provides a map of Oklahoma which locates the origin of students enrolled in credit classes by region, table III shows distribution of student enrollment in day/night classes, and table IV covers distribution of students by age. Highlighted findings include the following: (1) fall 1991 total enrollment was 10,126 students, an increase of 21.1% in headcount and 24.3% in credit hours over the previous fall; (2) fall 1991 data showed increases in the percent of full-time students, single students, and females, and decreases in the percent of night students and White students; (3) 39.9% of students enrolled in credit classes in fall 1991 were from the southwest quadrant of Oklahoma City; (4) spring 1992 total enrollment was 10,222, an increase of 1.7% in headcount and 2.1% in credit hours over the previous spring; (5) spring 1992 showed slight increases in the percent of single students, males, and Blacks and Native Americans, and a significant increase in students pursuing a transfer degree (from 23.5% and 34.5%); and (6) three-fourths of the students were from the western half of Oklahoma City, with just over 40% from the southwest quadrant.
