Trends in Student Aid: 1981 to 1991.
College Board, Washington, DC. Washington Office.
This report provides statistics on student aid in the 1980s and 1990s, complementing the publication, "Trends in Student Aid: 1963 to 1983." It revises figures presented earlier for the 1980s and gives estimates for academic year 1990-91. Tables 1 to 8 provide a variety of statistics on student aid, family income, and college costs for the period 1981-82 through 1990-91. Appended tables provide basic program statistics for all years in the College Board data base back to 1963-64. Table 6 of this report includes data on the distribution of guaranteed student loan dollars by type of institution. Among the report's findings are the following: (1) total available student aid in 1990-91 was $27.9 billion; (2) in academic year 1990-91, the federal government provided 75 percent of available student aid; (3) over the last decade, the federal share of available aid has decreased from 85 to 75 percent; (4) Pell Grant funding failed to keep pace with inflation between 1989-90 and 1990-91, declining in purchasing power by $118 million; and (5) although college costs rose throughout the last decade, annual growth has slowed substantially since 1986-87.
