This report provides recent statistics on trends in student aid in the 1980s and 1990s for the federal government, state governments, and educational institutions. The analysis also reports on changes in the costs of attending college and in family incomes in order to provide a context for assessing whether college is becoming more or less affordable. Tables and figures present the following information for the years 1982 to 1992: (1) aid awarded to postsecondary students in current dollars; (2) aid awarded to postsecondary students in constant 1991 dollars; (3) appropriations for generally available federal aid programs; (4) cost of attendance and income; (5) number of recipients and aid per recipient; (6) percentage distribution of aid from the Pell, federal campus based, and guaranteed student loan programs by type of institution; (7) grants, loans and work in current and constant 1991 dollars and as a percentage of total aid; (8) description of Pell Grant awards from 1973 to 1992; and (9) authorized versus maximum Pell Grant awards. In a "Highlights" section it is noted that total available aid is 33 percent higher than a decade ago. Appendixes contain information on aid awarded to post-secondary students in current dollars and constant dollars (1963 to 1982). A final section offers notes on data sources. (JB)
