This report presents 1998-99 data on Pennsylvania's 34 public and 108 private colleges and universities, as well as for 92 private schools licensed to grant specialized associate degrees. An introduction offers highlights noting that the increase in undergraduate basic student charges was greater than the increase in the consumer price index for all institution types; enrollments have been growing, on average, 1 percent per year since 1996, following a period of declining enrollments; over 79 percent of fall 1997 enrollees were Pennsylvania residents; the number of master's and doctoral degrees awarded has increased 42.3 percent and 19.1 percent, respectively, in the last decade; Pennsylvania had the eighth highest average salary for full-time instructional faculty at public four-year institutions; and current funds revenues for public institutions in 1997-98 decreased by 0.7 percent from 1996-97. Detailed figures and data tables are grouped into six sections: (1) basic student charges (averages by institutional category, institution, and for first-professional programs); (2) fall enrollments (by institutional category, sex, age, level, race); (3) residence of students (by institutional category, level, and race); (4) degrees conferred (by institutional category, sex, race, and level); (5) faculty and staff (average salaries and tenure status, and comparisons with the CPI); and (6) finance (current-funds revenues by source, institutional category, and function). Appendices include a glossary and list of sources. (DB)
