Chapter 1 includes information on the number of community colleges by type of control; a comparison of public community colleges and public four-year colleges in term of headcount enrollment, freshmen and minority enrollments, average expenditures, average annual tuition, and average federal aid amount per student; estimated percentage of state populations over age 17 attending community colleges, and number of community colleges by state. Chapter 2 focuses on student enrollment and student characteristics, including attendance status, sex, racial/ethnic background, and age, and distribution of reported disabilities. Chapter 3 looks at indicators of community college impact, including remedial/developmental education, involvement in workforce training, associate degrees conferred, degrees conferred on international students, programs with excellent job prospects, median income, and transfer rate. Chapter 4 focuses on student tuition, fees, and financial aid.
