The 1987/88 edition of the Institute of International Education's annual publication enumerating the foreign student population in the United States is presented. Campus officials provided institutional totals of foreign students in the categories of country of origin and academic and personal characteristics. This source of information on the broad characteristics of foreign students is very complete since it is based on almost the entire foreign student population (with a response rate to the survey of 99.5%). Four parts focus on the following: (1) the annual census of foreign students in the U.S. (overview of foreign study, geographic region, academic characteristics, personal characteristics, distribution by U.S. region and state, distribution in two- and four-year institutions, distribution in public and private institutions, institutions with most foreign students, and foreign students by academic level); (2) cost of living expenditures by foreign students in the U.S.; (3) intensive English language programs, and (4) eight appendices. The appendices feature: foreign student enrollment by institution; country or other place of origin of foreign students; fields of study; countries or other places by region and subregion; states within U.S. region; response rate; survey materials; and foreign student enrollments in intensive English language programs.
