Age Group and Sex of Students. Fall 1974. Report No. 8-75.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Central Staff Office of Institutional Research.
There has been considerable discussion in the literature of higher education regarding significant changes in student body characteristics. The data in this document examines distribution of students at the State University of New York system by age group and sex. Tables array four fundamental student characteristics: age, sex, level (graduate/undergraduate), and load (part-time/full-time). Tables in Part II array age and sex by level and load for each institution of the state university; Part I contains summary tables for institutional types by headcount and percentage distribution. Two points of particular interest that can be made on the basis of this data are: (1) the majority of undergraduate students at the state university are over 18 and less than 23 years of age, but 33.1 percent are over 23 years of age; (2) 48.4 percent of the undergraduates under the age of 35 are women, but 60.3 percent of the undergraduates over the age of 35 are women.
