Demographic and Market Alternatives Analysis for Foothill-De Anza Community College District.
This report presents and analyzes data on the demographics of the Foothill-De Anza Community College District (FDCCD) and suggests four alternatives for meeting existing community needs. After a summary of findings and recommendations, data tables and accompanying text focus on: (1) population projections by age; (2) household size trends and projections; (3) enrollment projections for elementary and secondary schools; (4) residential land available and absorbed; (5) median house costs; (6) median household incomes; (7) age distribution of students enrolled in FDCCD general education courses; (8) district enrollment projections by age; and (9) yield rates, i.e., the percent of students enrolled in relation to the service area population. The paper then presents the four alternatives for meeting the community's needs: to repackage existing programs in formats more acceptable to older students; to develop programs that deal with self-growth and lifestyles; to develop programs to meet the job training needs of students and industry; and to develop programs to meet the general training needs of local industry. Additional tables and text provide information relevant to these alternatives, including data on university extension courses, existing lifestyles and management improvement courses, private schools offering occupational education, industry growth and employment rates, and demand occupations.
