State Higher Education Appropriations, 1994-95.
Hines, Edward R.; Pruyne, Gwen B.
This report describes and analyzes state support for higher education in fiscal year 1995 in tables, graphs, and text. The report provides: an analysis of funding trends nationwide; a national map showing percentages of 2-year gains for all states; a table showing appropriations amounts by state for the most recent 3 years as well as percentage changes; a table showing state tax appropriations per capita and per $1,000 of personal income, local tax appropriations, and national rankings; and individual state tables showing total state tax appropriations for higher education. The report finds that growth of the national economy has favored state budgets. With an increase in the amount of $1.7 billion in state support in fiscal year 1995, the total state support for higher education now exceeds $42 billion. Although some states have seen great increases in support, others have not. Support increased 45 percent in Mississippi, while in Oregon, it declined 10 percent. Many states in the South and West face pressing demands for access from growing populations while other states, with a stagnation of traditional-age students, see increasing demand for adult education and work force retraining.
