Changes in FTSE in Selected Occupational Areas by Student Sex: Fall 1972, Fall 1977, and Fall 1982. Report No. 82-16.
Data are provided in this report on the changes in the sexual composition of full-time student enrollments in selected occupational areas in the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD). The report provides figures on male and female enrollments for fall 1972, fall 1977, and fall 1982 in eight areas: Administration of Justice, Automotive, Data Processing, Drafting, Electronics, Engineering Science, Management, and Marketing. Table 1, which presents the number and percentage of male and female full-time student equivalent (FTSE) enrollments for the three selected years, is followed by a series of charts illustrating the changes in the sexual composition of the program enrollments over the 10-year period. The final series of tables offers a sexual breakdown of enrollments at each of the seven colleges in the district for the same 3 years. The following findings are highlighted: (1) all programs showed increases in FTSE enrollments between 1972 and 1982; (2) in the Automotive program, only male FTSE increased substantially; (3) in Administration of Justice and Management, most of the growth in FTSE was attributable to female enrollments; (4) the proportion of female students in each of the eight program areas increased between fall 1972 and fall 1982; (5) while in 1972 males accounted for 78% and females 14% of the FTSE in all program areas combined, by 1982 males accounted for 61% and females for 35% of the FTSE.
