Profiles 1991/1992. Detailed Analyses of the Foreign Student Population.
Zikopoulos, Marianthi, Ed.
This publication presents, in narrative and tabular formats, the findings of a 1991-92 survey of foreign students attending institutions of higher education in the United States, including information on nationalities, academic levels, and fields of study. The first of four chapters describes the survey effort and its relation to a sister project which reports aggregate data on foreign students on an institutional basis. Chapter 2 presents the characteristics of subgroups of foreign students grouped by region of origin--Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America, and Oceania. For each area, this chapter gives data on overall student characteristics, countries of origin, fields of study, academic levels, and gender. Chapter 3 focuses on an analysis of graduate and undergraduate foreign students. Chapter 4 provides data on students by fields of study. For many tables current data are compared with data from previous years. Appendixes provide: (1) information on the survey methodology and technical notes on the data including comparisons to response rates to a sister study called Open Doors; (2) data on the characteristics of foreign students by country of origin; and (3) codes for fields of study, countries by world region and subregion, and a copy of the survey materials.
