Demographic Study of the Coast Community College District.
Crow, Michael G.; Sanchez, Jorge R.
Designed to facilitate strategic planning in the Coast Community College District (CCCD) over the next decade, this demographic study presents data on the characteristics of the Orange County population and CCCD student enrollments. After chapter I presents a general introduction to the study, its scope and objectives, chapter II provides an overview of study highlights. Chapter III looks at Orange County characteristics, including population projections and demographic data on ethnic composition, fertility rates, age and gender comparisons, marital status, and college enrollment. District and college characteristics are the focus of chapter IV, which includes data on enrollments in the CCCD as well as other Orange County community college districts, physical facilities, student characteristics, and college programs. In chapter V, data on student enrollment and average daily attendance are presented, focusing on district enrollment by gender, age, unit load, degree plans, and ethnicity. Chapter VI offers projections for district enrollments through the year 2000 based on county age population projections. Chapter VII examines the sources of CCCD students in terms of different Orange County communities and high schools. Finally, chapter VIII investigates the links between economic factors, unemployment in Orange County, and college enrollments. A six-page bibliography concludes the document. (EJV)
