National Postsecondary Statistics, Collegiate and Noncollegiate: Fall 1990. Early Estimates. Survey Report.
Gordon, Henry A.; Ave, Eunice
This report provides early estimates of Fall 1990 enrollment and academic year 1989-90 completions for all postsecondary institutions in the United States (excluding outlying areas), irrespective of their accreditation status. The estimates are derived from data received from 1,158 postsecondary institutions involved in the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System survey. Tables display data for enrollment in postsecondary institutions by sex, attendance status, and attendance level of student and by level and control of institution; and for degrees and other formal awards conferred by postsecondary institutions by level of award and sex of recipient. Data on college-age populations and numbers of postsecondary institutions in the United States are also provided. Among the report's findings are the following: (1) Fall 1990 enrollment at postsecondary institutions increased about 3% over Fall 1989 enrollment; and (2) degrees and other formal awards conferred by postsecondary institutions in 1989-90 showed no significant change over 1988-89, though degrees earned by women increased by over 8%.
