Models for Predicting Gross Enrollments at the University of California.
Oliver, Robert M.
The purpose of this report is to discuss and compare two mathematical models for predicting student enrollments at the University of California. One has been proposed in the scientific literature and the second has been used by the state of California since 1963 to forecast student enrollments. The specific problems addressed in this report are the prediction of gross enrollments, i.e., freshmen, sophomores, etc., for a particular campus of the University as a whole. Although the experimental data is restricted to undergraduates, the discussion and conclusions are probably appropriate to graduate levels as well. (Author)
