Higher Education Prices and Price Indexes. 1975 Supplement.
Halstead, D. Kent
Higher Education price in index data for fiscal years 1971 through 1975 are presented. The supplement is published yearly shortly after the fiscal year to which the latest data refer, and the index values refer to the entire year, not any specific month of the year. The basic study, "Higher Education Prices and Price Indexes," presents complete descriptions of the indexes together with index values and price data for fiscal years 1961 through 1974. It includes a discussion of index number theory and computation, the uses and limitations of price indexes, and the effects of inflation on real expenditures for current operations, research and development, and physical plant additions. This supplement includes brief descriptions of several indexes: Higher Education Price Index, Research and Development Price Index, Boeckh Contruction Index, Capital Equipment Index, Construction and Equipment Index, and student charges data. Eight tables are also included, along with an appendix of price indexes by institutional type and control. (LBH)
