A survey of the 9,949 senior students in the business administration and economics programs of the Open Education Faculty (distance education) was conducted during the 1985-86 school year to obtain information on their social and socioeconomic characteristics. Usable responses were received from 8,382 students. The questionnaire sought information on the geographic regions where the students live as well as their sex, age, marital status, quality of the places where they live, whether they work outside the university, and their financial resources. It was found that 15% of the Open Education Faculty students are more than 25 years old, 59% work at a job, 13% are married, 35% are financially supported by their families, approximately 30% live in towns and villages, 29% are females, 71% are males, and 60% are enrolled in the economics program and 40% in business administration. Three tables highlight findings on the educational level of the students' mothers and fathers; their parents' monthly income; and the period of time the students spend working and studying. Thirteen of the 14 references are in Turkish. (ALF)
