Residence and Migration of First-Time Freshmen Enrolled in Higher Education Institutions: Fall 1994. E.D. TABS.
This report presents 23 tables of data on residence and migration of first-time freshmen based on the 1994 "Fall Enrollment" survey, part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. The survey counted 2.14 million first-time freshmen. More than 366,000 (17 percent) migrated between states. The percent of freshmen who left their state to attend college ranged from a low of 6.7 percent in Utah to a high of 50.2 percent in Alaska. In-migrants comprised almost 76 percent of the District of Columbia's total freshmen enrollment and over half the freshmen in New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. First time freshmen who had graduated in the previous 12 months comprised 69 percent of the total. Twenty-two percent of freshmen were enrolled in private higher education institutions. Over half of the freshmen who migrated between states did so to enroll in private institutions. The percent of freshmen enrolled in private institutions ranged from more than 40 percent in the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont to less than 10 percent in Alaska, Arizona, California, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, Washington, and Wyoming. Also, 84 percent of those migrating out of state did so to attend a 4-year school. The tables report the data by state or territory. Information on the survey methodology is appended. (DB)
