Findings related to the social and economic characteristics of students are reported from a 1973 Bureau of the Census survey. Enrollment figures show a rising long-term trend at all ages in the 14-34-year-old civilian noninstitutional population surveyed. Some changes found were a rising enrollment rate for ages 3 to 5 years, and a declining enrollment rate among young men of the age to enter college (18-19 years old). Content of the report is divided into sections with accompanying text tables on patterns of college attendance, explanation of population estimates, related reports, definitions and explanations, and source and reliability of the estimates. The remainder consists of one chart, 24 detailed tables, and one appendix on the age distribution of college students by sex. (Author/KSM)
