This 1999-2000 statistical report contains numerous data tables and figures on institutions of higher education in Pennsylvania. The data were compiled from annual surveys of the state's colleges and universities and are presented in the categories of basic student charges, fall enrollments, residence of students, degrees conferred, faculty and staff, and finance. Pennsylvania data are compared with national data drawn from the results of surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Major findings include: (1) the increase in undergraduate basic charges was greater than the Consumer Price Index; (2) female enrollments have outpaced male enrollments; (3) over 78 percent of total enrollees were Pennsylvania residents; (4) the largest growth in degrees conferred occurred at the first-professional and graduate levels; (5) Pennsylvania had the ninth-highest average salary for full-time instructional faculty on nine-month contracts among public four-year institutions in the nation in 1997-98; and (6) total current-funds revenues for public institutions rose to $5.6 billion in 1998-99, an increase of 6.5 percent; expenditures rose similarly. (Appendices contain a glossary, notes on sources, and a list of non-respondents.) (EV)
