This report provides longitudinal data on full-time equivalent students (FTES) in the nine colleges and Instructional Television program of the Los Angeles Community College District, covering the period from 1991 to 1996. Following a glossary and description of the methodology used to calculate FTES, the report presents five sets of tables showing districtwide and individual college/program data on annual FTES by semester; annual FTES composition (i.e., noncredit, credit, Greater Avenues for Independence (GAIN), GAIN and basic skills, basic skills excluding GAIN, Amnesty, and Amnesty and basic skills students); percentage breakdowns of annual FTES by these seven categories; annual FTES by day/evening status; and annual FTES by resident/nonresident status. Selected data include the following: (1) annual FTES in the district decreased from 71,466.33 in 1991-92 to 64,896.21 in 1994-95, and then rose slightly to 66,049.93 in 1995-96; (2) in 1995-96, credit weekly student contact hours accounted for 82.93% of annual FTES, while noncredit students accounted for 1.86%, GAIN students accounted for 1.26%, and Amnesty students accounted for 0.7%; and (3) in 1995-96, 42,560.46 of the annual FTES districtwide were day students and 2,137.44 were nonresidents, the lowest number of nonresident FTES for the 5-year period studied.
