Trends in Student Aid: 1980 to 1990. Update.
College Board, Washington, DC. Washington Office.
This report provides the most recent and complete statistics available on student aid in the 1980s. It revises figures presented earlier for the 1980s and, for the first time, gives estimates for academic year 1989-90. The data series upon which the report is based is intended to provide comparable statistics over time for the major providers of student aid in postsecondary education: the federal government; state governments; and the educational institutions themselves. To assist in trend interpretation, all data are in constant (adjusted for inflation) dollars, as well as current dollars. Tables 1 to 8 provide a variety of statistics on student aid, family income, and college costs in the 1980s. Appendix tables A and B provide basic program statistics for all years in the data base since 1963-64; this is to assist in calculating trends over longer periods other than those described in this update. Also included are a list of data sources. (GLR)
