The document consists of statistical tables which characterize social work education in the United States in 1978. Data were supplied by all Council on Social Work Education accredited graduate programs and all but three undergraduate programs. Six sections comprise the document. Section I analyzes the regional distribution of 264 institutions, institutional characteristics, number of programs by size of enrollment, and number of faculty. Section II examines the relationship between social work faculty and level of program in terms of percent of time in social work education; age and sex; ethnicity and sex; highest earned degree and sex; highest earned degree and ethnicity; and rank and sex. Tenure and salary ranges are also examined. Section III focuses on undergraduate students relative to enrollment by sex and ethnicity. Section IV considers graduate students in master's and post-master's programs, applications for admission and action taken, and master's and doctoral degrees awarded. Sex, age, ethnicity, field of practice and financial aid are also considered. Section V examines recent trends in social work education. Marked increases are seen in the number of part-time students enrolled in master's programs and in female faculty at the lower ranks. The proportion of women at higher ranks is decreasing. Section VI contains additional reference tables. A list of all accredited programs is provided. (KC)
