This report offers an overview of Canadian universities primarily by means of statistical data on enrollment, degrees, faculty, finance, and research. The report uses data from Statistics Canada and from the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development. An introduction provides an analysis of the financial status of Canadian universities and the impact of the changes of the 1980s. The tables on enrollment provide data by level of education, registration status and sex, field and discipline, and by age and sex. The section of tables on degrees gives data on degrees granted by level and sex, by field and sex, and by field and discipline for diplomas, certificates, bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, and doctoral degrees. Data on faculty include tables on full-time faculty by major field, highest degree earned, rank, age distribution, attrition by age group, appointments, inter-institutional mobility, and new recruits. A section on finance provides statistics for government spending, expenditures on education by level, established program financing, total expenditures on university education, general operating expenditures, total university income, general operating income, and sponsored research income. A final section on research compares spending on research with various economic indicators and figures at the national and international levels. (JB)
