Ontario Universities Statistical Compendium, 1970-90. Part A: Micro-Indicators.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto. Research Div.
This publication provides macro-indicators and complementary analyses and supporting data for use by policy and decision makers concerned with Ontario universities. These analytical tools are meant to unambiguously measure what is taking place in Canadian postsecondary education, and therefore, assist in focusing on what decisions need to be made. The indicators can be used to assist in: (1) measuring the real resources available to the Ontario university system as a function of the volume of activity over time, and (2) comparing trends in the resources made available for higher education in other jurisdictions and to other provincially-funded activities. This statistical compendium contains the macro-indicators and complementary analyses, together with commentary on the material, as well as a glossary of terms and definitions. A brief definition of what each macro-indicator is intended to measure is provided. The indicators are as follows: ratios of operating revenue to eligible full-time equivalent enrollment and basic income units; ratios of research expenditures to full-time faculty; percentage distribution of operating expenditures; and interprovincial comparisons. Derived system data which have been used in development of the indicators are provided in an appendix. Tabular data comprise half the volume. (GLR)
