Financial Support of Higher Education in Washington. A National Comparison.
Washington State Council on Higher Education, Olympia.
This document presents national comparisons of higher education support on the following criteria: (1) the tax support obtained from local taxing districts as well as state appropriations, (2) the proportion of each state's population enrolled in the state's higher education institutions, (3) the proportion of total student population in each state enrolled in private institutions compared with enrollment in public institutions, (4) the combined state and local appropriations for higher education on a per capita basis, (5) the contribution being made per capita compared with the State's per capita personal income. This document is an effort to bring to bear several of the relevant factors, including estimated local tax support, to aid in understanding overall patterns of state financial support. The tables are based on published data (sources are listed following the tables). In several cases where data substantially changed from the previous year, the states were contacted by telephone to provide an additional check. Tables are: (1) combined state and local expenditures for higher education per equivalent full-time student, (2-3) percentage of student enrollment in public institutions to total population and percentage of private enrollment to total student enrollment, (4-5) combined state and local appropriations per $1,000 of per capita personal income and combined state and local appropriations on a per capita basis. Appendix contains 1970-71, 1972-73, and 1973-74 comparison data. (Author/KE)
