Morgan, Frank B.
This report presents data, collected from 3,532 institutions of higher education within the 50 states and the District of Columbia, concerning the number of degrees conferred by these accredited institutions over the 10-year period from 1980-81 to 1989-90. Primary data sources were the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) for 1980-81 through 1984-85 and the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) for 1986-87 through 1989-90. Tables of data, comprising 85 percent of the report, list the following information: (1) numbers and percentages of degrees conferred by level of degree and sex without regard to race/ethnicity; (2) numbers and percentages of degrees conferred by level of degree and race/ethnicity without regard to sex; (3) numbers of degrees conferred and average annual percentage change by level of degree and field of study without regard to sex or race/ethnicity; (4) numbers of degrees conferred by sex, race/ethnicity, and field of study. In addition, individual tables present the same type of data specific to each level of degree (i.e., associate's, bachelor's, master's, doctor's, and first professional). The appendix provides the total number of associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctor's degrees conferred in 1989-90, by detailed program specialty and summarized to the discipline division. (GLR)
