The Almanac of Higher Education, 1992.
Chronicle of Higher Education, Washington, DC.
This book offers an overview of the health and financing of higher education in the United States in an almanac form for 1992. Diverse and extensive types of information are arranged in three main sections, the first covering higher education in the nation as a whole, the second offering state-by-state reports and the last giving statistics on enrollment by race. The section on the nation offers an introductory discussion and summary statistics followed by maps illustrating major national trends such as proportion of college and high school graduates, number of colleges and universities, share of total national college enrollment and other information. Four subsections treat issues under the categories of students, faculty and staff, resources, and institutions. The state-by-state reports each contain a narrative description of the past year's events, demographics, political leadership, colleges and universities, faculty members, students, money, and miscellany. The final section contains a table that shows the distribution of enrollment by racial and ethnic group for fall 1988 at over 3,100 colleges and universities grouped by state. (JB)
