State Higher Education Profiles. A Comparison of State Higher Education Data for Fiscal Year 1991. Seventh Edition.
Barbett, Samuel; And Others
This volume offers a comprehensive state-by-state look at higher education in the United States using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. The book contains 14 basic tables for each state, the District of Columbia, and the nation as a whole. The data for each state is as follows: Table 1 indicates the number and average size of institutions in the context of all postsecondary institutions in a state; tables 2 and 3 describe enrollment in higher education institutions by distribution of full-time equivalent students and by control and level of institution; table 4 presents the average salary of full-time faculty; tables 5 and 6 show education and general revenues; tables 7 and 8 display how institutions spend their money; table 9 shows scholarship and fellowship expenditures per students and expenditures per full-time faculty; table 10 indicates the labor-intensiveness of certain institutional functions; tables 11 through 13 present the distribution of degrees and other awards; and table 14 shows enrollment by race-ethnicity, data included for the first time in this edition. Extensive appendixes contain a glossary of terms, a list of institutions by state, technical notes, tables showing instructional activity at institutions in 1990-91, instructional activity by state, and the basic 14 tables for Puerto Rico.
