Sanchez, Jorge R.
The Coast Community College District (CCCD) in Southern California conducted a study to determine how representative the district and college student populations were of the primary service population. Recent increases in community college credit student fees significantly affected the defined student and service population. For the purpose of this analysis, the need to develop a consistent student population was important to establish a baseline comparison to the 1990 Census Population and Adult Educational Attainment data tables. The derived student population was defined as those 18 years of age or older at first census period of the fall semester, residing within the District's primary service region, who had not reported possession of a four-year or higher degree. The cities in the primary service region are Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Seal Beach, Westminster and the unincorporated areas (Sunset Beach, Surfside Beach, Midway City). For each of these cities, except the unincorporated areas, this report presents the following data tables: Public Law 94-171 Population Counts; 1990 Census and Adult Educational Attainment by Race and Persons of Hispanic Origin; Student Attendance, Fall 1990-Fall 1993; Educational Attainment of Persons 20 Years and Older by Race and Hispanic Origin; Student Demographics of High School Completers Without a Bachelor's or Higher Degree, Fall 1990, Fall 1991, Fall 1992, and Fall 1993; and Student Demographics for All Students, Fall 1990, Fall 1991, Fall 1992, and Fall 1993.
