Estimates of Enrollment at Public, Four-Year Institutions, Fall 1992.
Strand, Heather; Stapleton, Laura
This document reports estimated Fall 1992 enrollment at public, four-year institutions based on a survey mailed to over 570 institutions of higher education. The annual survey of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grand Colleges (NASULGC) member institutions drew a 93 percent response rate. Analysis of the data indicated that, for the first time since the mid-1980s, total enrollment did not increase due in part to economic conditions, higher tuition costs, stable or smaller pools of high school graduates, and externally or self-imposed enrollment caps. However, the historically black colleges and universities reported a total enrollment increase of 4.5 percent. Four tables and three graphs detail the findings. Appendixes, which comprise over half the document, contain three tables. The first shows AASCU respondents' total full-time part-time and grand total enrollments for individual institutions grouped by state. The second table shows NASULGC respondents' total full-time, part-time and grand total enrollments for individual institutions grouped by state. The third table shows nonaffiliated respondents' total full-time, part-time and grand total enrollments for individual institutions grouped by state. (JB)
