State Profiles: Financing Public Higher Education. 1978 to 1998 Trend Data.
This report presents two large tables showing trends in the financing of public higher education since 1977-78. Introductory information explains how to use the tables, the data-time relationship (whether fiscal year, academic year, or calendar year), and includes a sample chart constructed from one state's data. The raw data used for these analyses were: population, high school graduates, enrollment, taxable resources, tax revenue, appropriations, net tuition revenues, median income of households, and system support index. The first table presents the historical factor values by state. These values are: student source (high school graduates per 1,000 population), productivity (student participation), system relative size, state total taxable resources, state tax effort, state tax wealth (collected revenues), tax wealth relative to enrollment load (collected revenues per student), state payment priority (budget allocation), state appropriations, family share of total funding, tuition revenues, median income of households, family payment effort, family payment effort vs. state payment priority, total funding (output), taxable resources relative to enrollment load (input), and overall funding effort (output divided by input). The second table lists the basic nine historical data elements for each state, beginning with year 1977-78. (DB)
