High School Graduates: A Market Share Analysis.
Weeks, Ann A.
This report presents results of an analysis of the market share that Dutchess Community College (DCC) has of high school graduates in its service area and the larger demographic trends affecting DCC enrollment. Introductory material highlights the purpose of the study (i.e., to understand the college's market share in order to increase enrollments of traditional college-age students) and background variables (i.e., the projected decline by 29% from 1980 to 1995 in the total population of 15-19 year olds in Dutchess County). This section includes data on fall enrollments in Dutchess County elementary and secondary schools, and high school and population projections from 1982 to 2001. Next, data are provided on Dutchess County's 13 public school districts, which contain 14 public high schools. Tables present data on the population of the school districts and the school-age children in these districts. Next, information is provided on Dutchess County high school graduates, including the total number of public and non-public school graduates in Dutchess County by high school for 1980 through 1984. Then, the DCC market share of high school graduates is examined in terms of the numbers of Dutchess County high school graduates who enrolled at DCC from 1980 to 1984 and the percent of each high school graduating class enrolling at DCC during this period. Comparative percents for applicants and enrollees at DCC are presented for 1984. Finally, study conclusions and recommendations are provided. (HB)
