The annual survey of all regionally accredited U.S. institutions of higher education provides aggregate data on the total number of foreign students in the United States, the number of students from a particular country, the distribution of foreign students among different fields of study, and the geographic distribution of foreign students within the United States. Statistical data are presented in tables in five sections: (1) the annual census of foreign students in the United States (overview, geographic origin, academic characteristics, personal characteristics, distribution by U.S. region and state, distribution in two-year and four-year institutions, distribution in public and private institutions, institutions with the most foreign students, and academic level breakdowns of foreign students); (2) cost-of-living expenditures by foreign students in the United States; (3) intensive English language programs; (4) U.S. study abroad (program types, host regions, countries, and fields of study); and (5) appendices (foreign student enrollment by institution, place of origin, fields of study, place of origin by region and subregion, states within U.S. region, response rate, survey materials, enrollment in intensive English language programs, and study-abroad students by institution).
