Barbett, Samuel F.; And Others
This document is a profile report on higher education for the nation, each of the 50 states, and the District of Columbia for the fiscal year 1987. The report presents various statistics and indicators used to address a myriad of questions relating to state involvement, support, and performance in higher education. It indexes each state statistic to a national average and ranks states on selected statistics. Chapter 1 presents national data in 18 tables covering number and size of institutions, full- and part-time distribution, enrollment, revenues, total education and general (E&G) expenditures, scholarship and fellowship expenditures, salaries, and distribution of degrees. Chapter 2 contains state ranking tables on enrollment, salaries, revenues, endowment income, various types of expenditures, Pell Grants, research expenditures, library expenditures, and appropriations. Chapter 3 presents profiles of each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia covering enrollment, full-time faculty, revenues, expenditures, financial aid, degrees and other formal awards conferred. In addition, the chapter presents one table that places institutions into the context of all postsecondary institutions in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Three appendixes contain a glossary, a listing of institutions by state, and technical notes on response rates. (JB)
