Financial Statistics of Institutions of Higher Education: Fiscal Year 1979. State Data.
Brandt, Norman J.
Financial statistics of institutions of higher education were surveyed. The 14th annual Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS XIV) was mailed to all institutions listed in the Educational Directory, Colleges and Universities, 1978-79. Completed survey forms were received from 2,909 institutions (91.7 percent). Data were imputed for nonrespondents. Summary tables show selected financial statistics for fiscal years 1978 and 1979 and the percentage change by control, region, and state on the following information: current funds revenues, expenditures, value of physical plant assets, indebtedness, endowment, tuition, scholarship and fellowship awards, and educational expenditures. There was a net increase of six 4-year institutions and 37 2-year colleges. In 1979 as compared with 1978, two states had two more public institutions (Nebraska and Hawaii) and one outlying area (Puerto Rico) had one more; three states (New York, Texas, and Alaska) has a net loss of one; and the District of Columbia lost two publicly-controlled units. The net result was two more public reporting units for the aggregate United States in 1979 than in 1978. There was a net increase of 41 private institutions of higher education. The survey report form is appended. (CC)
