Schmitt, Carl M.
This publication presents findings from two national enrollment surveys on 10 year trends in higher education enrollment by racial/ethnic category in 17 tables. The surveys used are the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) and the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). The data presented are for about 3,600 accredited postsecondary institutions in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Tables present data on the following: enrollment trends for institutions of higher education by racial/ethnic categories and by selected student and institutional characteristics; final fall enrollments in institutions of higher education by state and by racial/ethnic category for 1990, 1991, and 1992; the number of postsecondary and higher education institutions in 1992 by state; the response rates to the IPEDS fall enrollment survey; and the impact of imputation on the data. Among 12 conclusions highlighted are the following: (1) enrollment in 1992 showed an overall increase over 1982 of 17 percent with minority enrollment increasing more than enrollment by whites; (2) during this time enrollment increased 8.7 percent for Whites, 26.6 percent for Blacks, 83.9 percent for Hispanics, 98.5 percent for Asians or Pacific Islanders, 35.1 percent for American Indians or Alaskan Natives, and 38.3 percent for nonresident aliens.
