Projections of Population and College Enrollment in Michigan, 1970-2000.
Goldberg, David; Anderson, Albert
The current flux of conditions associated with the slow growth of enrollment admittedly makes projecting enrollment to the year 2000 highly speculative. The only way this process can be handled is by generating several conceptually meaningful series of enrollment projections. The three sets of enrollment projections in this report are based on assumptions about mortality, fertility, and migration. Although very different, each is conceptually useful. There is an attempt to analyze how enrollment rates have changed and to indicate the rationale for the projections. Demographic constraints to higher education are translated into economic constraints, and these are fitted into the projections. Finally, there are brief policy recommendations for types of support programs to aid the three out of four projected potential students who would normally and should be attending college over the next ten years, but will not without such programs.
