Financial Statistics of Institutions of Higher Education. Commentary on Endowment, 1965-66 and 1966-67.
National Center for Educational Statistics (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Higher Education Surveys Branch.
As data were acquired in response to the finance questionnaire of the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) for 1966-67 and 1967-68, it became obvious from the responses and from the questions of the users of the data that the data on the endowment funds required more extended review and discussion. Therefore, this discussion of endowments is presented to clear up misconceptions about the quantity, function, and significance of endowment funds held by institutions of higher education. A bibliography is included to guide the interested reader to other studies on the subject, and the statistical tables presented in the HEGIS report are duplicated here for ready reference.
