National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
The National Center for Education Statistics has prepared a data tape for the 1988 Fall Enrollment Survey, representing 11,461 postsecondary institutions in the United States and its outlying areas. The survey is part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and is the second time that IPEDS has collected ethnic and racial data. Enrollment counts are given by institution for various student characteristics including: (1) sex; (2) race and ethnicity; (3) year of study; and (4) level of study. Institutional characteristics include control and level. Data are provided for 2,622 four-year institutions, 2,800 two-year institutions, and 320 under-2-year public institutions. Data are also included for a universe of 5,719 private under-2-year institutions based on a sample of 1,010 institutions. Data were imputed for institutions that did not respond. A subset of 3,621 institutions of higher education was previously surveyed by the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS), which the IPEDS supersedes. These institutions are separately identified on the data tape. TYPE OF SURVEY: Sample Survey; National Survey. POPULATION: Postsecondary Institutions (11,461).
