AACC Annual, 1998-99: State-by-State Analysis of Community College Trends and Statistics.
American Association of Community Colleges, Washington, DC.
This annual publication from the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) draws on information from AACC's database, the National Center for Education Statistics, and the U.S. Bureaus of the Census, Labor Statistics, and Economic Analysis to give a broad statistical overview of all the public and independent two-year colleges in the United States for 1998-99. Following the preface, 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 of statistics, identifying major problems, current trends, and new developments on issues in each state. 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 contact list of community college system state administrators is included. (Contains 17 references.) (AS)
