Barbett, Samuel F.; And Others
Profiles on higher education for fiscal year 1985 are presented for the United States, each of the 50 states, and the District of Columbia, with attention to state involvement, support, and performance in higher education. Each state is indexed to a national average and ranked on selected statistics, based on data collected through the Higher Education General Information Survey. The 12 statistical tables cover enrollment, full-time faculty, revenues, expenditures, degrees, and other formal awards conferred. Among the tables are statistical indicators of the status of higher education in a particular sector. The indicators adjust for the size of a sector where size is alternately defined as the number of full-time equivalent students or the number of full-time faculty. Four types of statistics are presented: actual counts (of individuals or amounts of money), percentage distributions, ratios (means and indicators), and indexes. Appended are information on data sources, definitions of terms, institutional classifications, and listings by state. (SW)
