Fall Enrollment in Higher Education 1975. Institutional Data.
Wade, George H.
The data result from a survey of Opening Fall Enrollment in Higher Education, 1975. The five tabulations list enrollment data by sex of student, full- or part-time attendance status, and level of study for each of 3055 institutional units, with state subtotals. Total enrollment in institutions of higher education increased by almost a million, to 11,290,719, in fall 1975 from the total reported a year earlier. These data are for students taking work creditable toward bachelor's or higher degrees or toward formal awards below the baccalaureate at institutions in the United States and its outlying areas. As for several years, enrollments in public institutions gained more than in private institutions both in number and rate of increase; in two-year institutions, both public and private, much more than in four-year institutions. Part-time enrollments continued to increase at a faster rate than did full-time enrollments; but after years of slower gains for men than for women, in fall 1975 the enrollment of men almost matched the rate of gain for women, lacking only a very small fraction of a percent.
