The Condition of Education, 1990. Volume 2: Postsecondary Education.
Alsalam, Nabeel, Ed.; Rogers, Gayle Thompson, Ed.
The National Center for Education Statistics' annual statistical report on the condition of education in the United States is presented in two volumes for 1990. This volume covers postsecondary education, while the first volume addresses elementary and secondary education. Condition of education indicators (CEIs)--key data that measure the health of education, monitor important developments, and show trends between 1970 and 1989 in education--are provided. This volume includes the text, tables, and charts/graphs for each CEI plus technical supporting data, supplemental information, data sources, and glossaries. For student progression and outcomes, context, and resources, 30 CEIs are provided. Most CEIs examine relationships; show changes over time; compare subpopulations, regions, or states; or study traits of students from different backgrounds. New CEIs in 1990 include college enrollment rate for recent HS graduates, tuition charges as a fraction of income of families with children, proportion of young adults holding jobs, and distribution of college students by parents' education and income. This volume provides disparate data on persistence and completion rates; minorities and women in higher education; mathematics, science, and engineering; and returns to college education. (RLC)
