Enrollment in Higher Education: Fall 1984 through Fall 1993. E.D. TABS.
Barbett, Samuel F.; And Others
This publication presents detailed data on student enrollment at institutions of higher education from Fall 1984 to Fall 1993 in 24 tables (though most tables include data from 1991 through 1993 only). The data are from the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) and the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). The data reported here pertain only to accredited institutions. Highlights of the data include: (1) in 1993 1.2 percent fewer students enrolled than in 1992, the first decline in total enrollment since 1984 and due entirely to a 3 percent decrease in the number of white, non-Hispanic undergraduate students; (2) the decrease in white student enrollment was offset by increases in enrollments among all other racial/ethnic groups as well as by non-resident aliens; (3) numbers of minority students enrolled increased in public institutions by 2.6 percent; (4) the enrollment of both men and women declined with the number of men decreasing at a slightly higher rate than that of women; (5) full-time enrollment decreased by less than one-half of 1 percent while part-time enrollment decreased by more than 2.3 percent; and (6) most of the enrollment declines were in 2-year institutions which is reasonable since the number of part-time students declined and 57 percent of all part-time students attend 2-year schools. The tables present the data broken down by various combinations of the following factors: control of institution, level of institution, race/ethnicity, sex, and full-time vs. part-time enrollment.
