The Growth of Higher Education in the United States.
Haggstrom, Gus W.
This paper is a statistical study of the growth of higher education in the United States with emphasis upon trends in student enrollment patterns at all levels. The flow of students from high school graduation through the graduate schooos is described through an examination of graduation rates, entrance and attrition rates at each level, and the effects upon enrollments of such factors as the draft, G.I. Bills, the junior college movement, and economic factors. Long-term projections of degree production and enrollments in various categories are given based upon statistical models which combine the information provided by past trends in the enrollment patterns with assumptions about the future leveling off of enrollment rates at all levels.
