Residence and Migration of First-Time Freshmen for the State of Hawai'i, Fall 1996. Special Report.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu.
This report presents information on the residence and migration of first-time freshmen for the State of Hawaii for the Fall 1996 semester. The information presented is for first-time freshmen only. The first-time freshmen population discussed in this report is divided into three groups: (1) those residents of Hawaii who chose to main in the State to attend either a University of Hawaii (UH) campus or private degree-granting institution; (2) those Hawaii residents who chose to leave the State to enroll in institutions on the U.S. mainland; and (3) those first-time freshmen who came to Hawaii from other states or from foreign countries. Information is further broken down by type of institution attended: public versus private and four-year versus two-year. Findings show that UH seems to be the first choice for most Hawaii-resident first-time freshmen. The vast majority of students in-migrating to Hawaii attend private rather than public UH institutions. In contrast, slightly more than half of out-migrating students attended private institutions. The percentage of Hawaii resident first-time freshmen remaining in the state and proportion of first-time freshmen enrolled in the state who are Hawaii residents have declined since 1992. Overall, 21.9% more students left Hawaii than entered. Appendices include lists of U.S. mainland institutions with ten or more Hawaii resident first-time freshmen enrolled in Fall 1996, as well as lists of the 50 states with the number of Hawaii-resident first-time freshmen enrolled in each state.
