National Postsecondary Statistics, Collegiate and Noncollegiate: Fall 1989--Early Estimates. Survey Report.
This report provides early estimates of fall 1989 enrollment and academic year 1988-89 completions for all postsecondary institutions in the United States. The estimates are from the "Early Estimates" survey conducted as part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. The survey, conducted by telephone, collected key enrollment and completions data from a nationwide sample of 1,098 postsecondary institutions representing the more than 11,500 such schools. Tables present data for: (1) enrollment in postsecondary institutions, by sex, attendance status, and attendance level of student, and by level and control of institution; (2) degrees and other formal awards conferred by postsecondary institutions, by control of institution, level of degree, and sex of recipient; (3) number of postsecondary institutions in the United States, by control and level of institution; and (4) population of selected age cohorts and high school graduates from 1970 to 1989. Findings from the data are discussed, and three figures graphically portray percentage distributions of selected data elements. (JDD)
