Data on degrees awarded by Maryland public and private colleges and universities for fiscal years 1971-1982 are presented. Twelve-year trends are reported by broad academic area within each degree level (lower-division certificate, associate, bachelors, masters, doctoral, first-professional). Trends in degree production by race and sex for 1976-1982 are also covered. The trend data are presented in graphs and statistical tables, as well as an introductory narrative summary.
