National Higher Education Statistics: Fall 1989. Early Estimates. Survey Report.
The report presents preliminary data on student enrollment at colleges and universities taken from the "Fall Enrollment" survey, part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. The telephone survey collected key enrollment, degree completion, and finance data from a nationwide sample of 642 institutions of higher education representing the more than 3,600 such institutions in operation in 1989. Among other findings, estimates from the Survey indicate that: (1) fall enrollment in colleges and universities increased almost 3.5% over fall 1988; (2) total awards of associate and higher degrees rose nearly 2% in academic year 1988-89 with women accounting for almost all of the increase; (3) current funds revenues and expenditures increased 7.2% and 6.4% respectively, in fiscal year 1988-89. Data are detailed in both narrative and tabular form for the areas of enrollment, completions (undergraduate and postbaccalaureate degrees), and finance. Survey methodology is also addressed. The 11 tables detail findings by such variables as sex, attendance status, level and control of institution, and fiscal years. (DB)
