AACC Annual, 1997-98
Drawing on information provided by the American Association of Community College's database, the National Center for Education Statistics, and the U. S. Bureaus of the Census, Labor Statistics, and Economic Analysis, this publication provides a broad statistical overview of all the public and independent two-year colleges in the United States using extensive tables, charts, and graphs. Following introductory sections, the paper is divided in two parts. Part 1 provides national charts to offer a quick comparison of community college enrollments and median household income from state to state. Charts naming the top ten associate degrees and certificates awarded, revenue sources, mean earnings, and educational attainment are also included. Part 2 focuses on a state-by-state analysis that breaks down each state's statistics individually. Introductory profiles tell about major problems, current trends, and new developments on issues in each state. Following the profiles, charts offer information on the number of students enrolled, populations served by the community colleges, faculty salaries, funding and expenditures, sources of revenue, educational attainment of residents, state ranks for gross state product, statistics on unemployment, and number of welfare recipients. Information on data sources and a list of contact information for state administrators of community college systems is included. (ECF)
