Appropriations. State Tax Funds for Operating Expenses of Higher Education, 1977-78.
Chambers, M. M.
The nineteenth annual edition of the report provides a record of state tax appropriations for the 1977-78 fiscal year. Data are arrayed in charts by state, with some analysis provided. Figures are given for operating expense appropriations of individual institutions, and often for individual programs of the institutions. A chart showing two- and ten-year gains in appropriations for each state is included. Data are not included for New Hampshire or Pennsylvania, since funds had not been appropriated at the time of publication. Among the highlights: nearly fifteen and a quarter billion dollars were appropriated by states for operating expenses of all higher education in the 50 states; the two-year gain of total appropriations was 20 percent; state rates of two-year gain were more nearly uniform than in any other year of the survey; the median of state two-year gains was 22 percent; and four of the more populous states that were in or near a low-gains class a year ago have moved up substantially.
