Fall Enrollment in Higher Education, 1977. Final Report.
Pepin, Andrew J.
Data are provided on fall 1977 enrollment in American colleges and universities. Information is grouped under four major categories: summary tables, enrollment by level of institution, enrollment by state, and enrollment by institution. The data were obtained from the 3,130 two-year and four-year public and private colleges and universities and their branches included in the National Center for Education Statistics'"Education Directory: 1977-78 Colleges and Universities." Race/ethnic and major field of study data were not collected in fall 1977. Background information on the survey population, questionnaire editing procedures, and a reproduction of the survey instrument are appended. Findings are summarized as follows: total enrollment in fall 1977 in all institutions of higher education increased 2.6 percent over the previous year; the trend toward increased enrollment of women continued in fall 1977; there were greater increases in part-time than in full-time enrollment in both public and private institutions; at public colleges and universities, there was an increase of 2.9 percent in first-time freshman enrollment in 1977, while the opposite was true for private institutions, which experienced a slight drop (0.1 percent) in first-time freshman enrollment.
