Trends in Enrollment in Higher Education by Racial/Ethnic Category: Fall 1982 through Fall 1991. E.D. TABS.
Schmitt, Carl M.; Pluta, Mark J.
This report presents findings from two institutional-based postsecondary education fall enrollment surveys conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics: the Higher Education General Information Survey, and the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) surveys. The report includes eight tables (80 percent of the report) that summarize fall enrollment information. Tables 1 and 2 show enrollment trends for institutions of higher education by racial/ethnic categories and by selected institutional characteristics (by control of institution and by type of institution), biennially for fall 1982 through fall 1990, and 1991. Tables 3 and 4 provide data on total enrollment in institutions of higher education by racial/ethnic category and by selected student characteristics (by sex and by level of study) from biennially, fall 1982 through fall 1990, and 1991. Table 5 shows final fall 1990 enrollment in institutions of higher education, by state and by racial/ethnic category. Table 6 shows final fall 1991 enrollment in institutions of higher education, by state and by racial/ethnic category. Table 7 shows the rates of response to the IPEDS fall 1991 enrollment survey, by state. Finally, table 8 shows the percentage of student enrollment that was imputed for each sector by state (fall 1991). Among the findings it is revealed that: (1) larger numbers of women enroll in higher education than men; (2) undergraduate enrollments in higher education increased from 1982 to 1991 across all racial/ethnic groups; and (3) enrollment by minority groups increased at a higher rate than for white, non-Hispanics.
