The Higher Education System in Israel: Statistical Abstract and Analysis.
This edition of a statistical abstract published every few years on the higher education system in Israel presents the most recent data available through 1990-91. The data were gathered through the cooperation of the Central Bureau of Statistics and institutions of higher education. Chapter 1 presents a summary of principal findings covering the potential for and accessibility to undergraduate studies, student characteristics and enrollment, the progression of undergraduate studies in universities, recipients of degrees, staff, and financial and physical data. When possible, comparisons are made with similar data from other developed nations. Findings include the following: entering undergraduates are either those who completed secondary education in Israel with a matriculation certificate, those who lack the matriculation certificate, or immigrants who completed secondary school abroad; the total number of students in higher education has increased by 6.4 percent since 1989-90; and the percent of students receiving bachelors degrees within 5 years has improved significantly. Remaining chapters present the data in extensive tables and figures. Appendixes contain a brief outline of the higher education system in Israel, technical information on the sources of data, definitions and classifications, and price indices for the ordinary budget of institutions.
