Comparative Financial Statistics for Public Community and Junior Colleges, 1983-84: An Experimental Study of 560 Institutions.
Dickmeyer, Nathan; Cirino, Anna Marie
Comparative financial information for fiscal year (FY) 1983-84 is presented in this report, derived from two surveys of a sample of 560 public community and junior colleges. Chapter 1 provides guidance on the use of the report in comparing institutional statistics with national and peer group medians; points out limitations of the data; and summarizes findings in the areas of expenditures, revenues, service area, and staffing. Chapters 2 and 3 present data on the medians and quartiles for the full sample, touching upon expenditures, revenues, course enrollment distributions, salaries, and student/staff ratios. Chapter 4 offers medians and quartiles for institutional peer groups classified by enrollment size and vocational/technical designation. Report highlights indicate that: (1) the median college spent $3,392 per credit full-time equivalent student in FY 1984; (2) total current fund revenues increased by one-third from FY 1979 to FY 1984; (3) academic expenditures accounted for approximately 60% of the budget from year to year at the median institution; and (4) students paid $638 in tuition and fees at the median college, accounting for 18% of the revenues. Appendices contain information on study methodology, participating colleges, and peer group composition; sample surveys; and definitions of terms. (EJV)
