The Outlook for Enrollments in Higher Education in Maryland Through the 1980's.
Maryland Council for Higher Education, Annapolis.
The history of the growth of college enrollment in Maryland over the last twenty years has been marked by unprecedented increases in numbers of students, particularly in the 1960's, but the end of that period of rapid growth is approaching. This report highlights the past growth of higher education in Maryland, points out significant factors in the characteristics of students involved in higher education, and discusses the nature and extent of future growth of higher education enrollment for the coming years. Included are detailed enrollment trends of the last five years, the birth rate in Maryland over the last 35 years, the Maryland high school graduates, and the rates of college attendance based on age and sex; these data along with migration to and from Maryland, elementary-secondary enrollments, and other census data constitute the inputs for a computerized enrollment projection model for higher education that has been developed by the Maryland Council for Higher Education. The enrollment projections for higher education in Maryland to the year 1990 by segment and enrollment status are presented as those that are most reasonable in terms of past trends. (Author/KE)
