Data compiled from aggregate forms completed by individual Massachusetts colleges and universities as part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), formerly known as the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS), are presented. Only data pertaining to those institutions authorized to grant degrees in Massachusetts or which have degree granting authority in association within another institution are included. Information is presented in three sections, reflecting data from Massachusetts colleges and universities, both public and private, which completed the enrollment and completions HEGIS/IPEDS survey forms for the fall of 1987. The first section provides aggregate, racial/ethnic and institutional data on student enrollment; the second section, on degrees granted for the period of July 1, 1986 through June 30, 1987, provides data reported by Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) and data reported by gender and by ethnic/racial classification; and the third section offers historical enrollment and completions awarded data for the public and independent sectors from 1978 to 1987 inclusive. Each part of the report is prefaced with an explanation of the categories used and is annotated where appropriate. Four appendices are as follows: IPEDS reporting institutions in Massachusetts higher education; definitions; fall 1987 total headcount enrollment data--Boston Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area and greater Boston; and a listing of the classification of instructional programs for IPEDS completions awards.
