Part II presents an overview of foreign study in the United States and offers data on leading places of origin, academic characteristics, personal characteristics, distribution by U.S. region and state, distribution in two-year and four-year institutions, distribution in public and private institutions, and institutions with the most foreign students. Other parts record data on foreign students by academic level, in intensive English language programs, foreign scholars in the United States, and cost-of-living expenditures by foreign students. The report includes a section of highlights and major trends, and displays data in approximately 100 tables and 25 figures.
