Fall Enrollment in Higher Education, 1978.
Pepin, Andrew J.
Data are presented on fall 1978 enrollment in American colleges and universities. The data were obtained from 3,173 two-year and four-year public and private colleges and universities and their branches included in the National Center for Education Statistics'"Education Directory, 1978-79, Colleges and Universities." Information is grouped under seven major categories: summary tables, enrollment by level of institution, enrollment by state, enrollment by institution, enrollment by race/ethnicity, enrollment by major degree field, and enrollment by major degree field and race/ethnicity. Findings include the following: enrollments in colleges and universities declined for the second time in the last three years; public college and university enrollments dropped for all three types of institutions, while total private school enrollment increased; women enrollments in colleges for the past several years have counterbalanced the decreases in enrollments experienced by men; and a total of 1.8 percent fewer students attended college full-time in 1978 than the previous year. Background information on the survey population and questionnaire procedures and a sample survey questionnaire are included. (SW)
