Student Residence Locations and Associated Enrollment Data.
Landini, Albert J.; And Others
This report documents the second-year progress of the Community College Data Base Team in their efforts to build a geographically based data system for use by college researchers and administrators. The primary purpose of the 1973-74 team effort was to expand the 1972-73 data base by adding internally generated district items, aggregated to the census tract level, that would be useful in operationally defining and geographically locating handicapped persons. In addition, the external portion of the data base was expanded by adding 1970 census items that describe summaries of employment by four gross employment categories. Five tasks were carried out: creation of a student extract file from the complete Active Student File; aggregation of student data items to individual census tracts; creating an individual college service area definition algorithm; creating a census subfile for employment data; and computer mapping of critical data items. In addition to map production, the processed data were used to generate three tabular reports: Student Enrollment Data, Occupation of Employed Population, and District Student Data. (DB)
