Distribution of High School Graduates and College-Going Rate. New York State, Fall 1980.
New York State Univ. System, Albany.
Tables present data, without narrative analysis, concerning the distribution of 1979-80 high school graduates of New York State's public and private schools. The data were secured through the state education department's Basic Educational Data System, and reflect students' status as of fall 1980. The first table presents trends, 1966 through 1980, in the state college-going rate, and shows percentages of graduates entering two-year degree-granting and four-year degree-granting institutions and other postsecondary institutions (public and nonpublic high schools shown separately and together). The second table shows a 10-year trend of the college-going rate within and outside New York State, indicating type of institution entered, for public and nonpublic school graduates separately and together. Table three shows the distribution of public high school graduates, by region and county, entering postsecondary education within and outside the state, entering employment, and entering military service. The fourth table presents distribution patterns of nonpublic high school graduates, and the final table shows the overall distribution of public and nonpublic school graduates combined. (MSE)
