Geographic Origins of Students. Fall 1973. Report No. 2-75.
State Univ. of New York, Albany.
The tables in this document are formatted to provide geographic origin information on numbers of graduate and undergraduate students both full- and part-time. Tables for each college are provided that show the numbers of students at the college from each New York State county, other state, or foreign country. In another part of the report, this same permanent residence information is arrayed by county, state, and country. Summary tables and percentage trends are included. Definitions of terms used in this report are provided in the glossary at the end of the book. Some findings are: (1) More (43.9 percent) students at University Centers have permanent residencies in the county of the institution's location than students at the University Colleges (29.2 percent). (2) Among all senior institutions, the Health Sciences Centers have the highest percentage (55.1 percent) of students coming from their local area, while the Specialized (24.0 percent) and Statutory Colleges (11.3 percent) have the lowest percentages of this type of student. (3) There are 30.8 percent of the students at the Agricultural and Technical Colleges who come from the local area. (5) There are 19.0 percent of the students attending Statutory Colleges who resided in some other state.
