Preliminary results of the 1986-87 Council of Graduate Schools/Graduate Record Examinations (CGS/GRE) Enrollment Survey are presented. Respondents totaled 512 of the 552 U.S.institutions surveyed, for a 93% response rate. Highlights of the survey results include: (1) CGS and affiliated institutions enrolled 85% of the total graduate enrollment nationwide, with public institutions representing 70% of these enrollments; (2) nearly half of the students were women; (3) among master's-only institutions, 56% of the students were women; (4) part-time students comprised 52% of the total enrollments; and (5) graduate students at private institutions were somewhat more likely to be male (51% versus 48%) and full-time (43% versus 41%) than their counterparts at public institutions. Statistical tables give data on total enrollment by institution type and sex, and by institution type and enrollment status (1986), first-time enrollment by institution type and sex (1986), graduate degrees awarded by sex (1985-1986), and a profile of graduate enrollment by region (1986).
