Projected Degree-Credit Enrollments Through 1985 in South Carolina Colleges and Universities.
Kinard, Frank E.; Krech, Alan S.
Two methods were used to project college and university enrollment in South Carolina: the age ratio method, which correlates college attendance with the population of traditional college age; and the cohort survival method, using historical data on the progression of students from high school to and through college. The projections indicate that enrollment in senior and junior colleges and universities in the state will continue to increase in the 1976 to 1985 period, but at a substantially lower rate than previously. The two projection methods yield increases of 40 and 26 percent respectively. The difference between the two projections seems less significant than the fact that neither method projects a downturn in degree-credit enrollment in the forseeable future. Some charts and tables are included. (Author/MSE)
