Fact Book on Higher Education in the South, 1983 and 1984.
Myers, Michael M.
Data are presented on higher education in the South in 1983 and 1984, including more than 60 tables and brief descriptions of the latest available statistics for the United States, the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) region, and the 14 individual SREB-member states. The tabular information is grouped under six headings: population and economy, enrollment and institutions, degrees, institutional finances, student finances, and faculty. Among the findings are the following: 3 of every 10 persons in the United States live in the South and by the year 2000, the region's population will increase by one-third; the economic growth of the South is demonstrated in the rise of per capita personal income; on the average, the southern region appropriates a larger share of state tax funds to higher education than do state governments nationally; both nationally and in the South, faculty salaries on the average increased about 4 percent from 1982-1983 to 1983-1984 in public colleges and universities; tuition accounts for an average of 11.5 percent of the current funds revenues of public institutions in the SREB states; more than 3.3 million students were enrolled in southern colleges in fall 1982; and about 84 percent of college students in the South attend public institutions.
