Statistical Digest of Postsecondary Occupational Education at Public Institutions.
This digest provides summary information from a major data collection effort involving a nationally representative survey of public or nonprofit institutions offering postsecondary occupational or technical education. The survey focused on the processes of curriculum and instructional decision making and student decision-making behavior. The 105 tables in the document are organized into five major categories: institutional characteristics and administration; linkages to external agencies; occupational programs and instruction; career guidance/placement office; and student characteristics. Within each major category, the tables are grouped by subject matter. The table of contents lists the order of 27 subjects within the five categories. Finally, an index to the digest can be used to find individual items of interest. All the tables present the data by institutional type and for the entire sample. Most of the data entries are unweighted means or frequency percentages. In other cases, rank orders of unweighted data are presented. The survey instruments are appended to the digest. (KC)
