Data on various aspects of the revenues flowing into colleges and universities during the mid and late 1970s are provided. Attention is directed to the total amount of financial resources used for higher education, the way that the total has changed in recent years in absolute and relative terms, and who contributes what portion of the total. The following institutional perspectives are addressed: current fund revenues, sources of revenue, fund balances, and unit revenues. Investor-consumer dimensions that are covered include: the federal government's share, the state and local government's share, voluntary support, the institutional share, the student and family share, and the total amount of resources going to higher education. For each topic, a brief overview of the concepts involved is provided, along with information on the specific data issues having to do with calculations or derivations, and data problems (e.g., errors, omissions). Tables and figures that provide basic data in different contexts (e.g., current versus constant dollars) are included. Appendices include: the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems taxonomy of colleges, the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) on finance, and instructions and definitions for the HEGIS survey.
