Marks, Joseph L.
This edition of the "Fact Book" continues a tradition that began in 1956. Comparative data and trends for colleges and universities in the states that are members of the Southern Regional Education Board are presented in a national context. The "Fact Book" contains detailed national, regional, and state data on: educational attainment and demographics; economic indicators; elementary and secondary enrollments; high school graduates; employment and unemployment; government revenues and expenditures; college-going rates; retention rates and enrollments by age, sex, racial and ethnic group, and full-time or part-time status; undergraduate, graduate, and professional-level enrollments; graduation and progression rates and degrees granted; tuition and fees; financial aid to students; characteristics and salaries of faculty and administrators; public funding for higher education; and college and university revenues and expenditures. These data can help answer questions about the effectiveness of state, local, and institutional policies. (Contains 87 tables.) (SLD)
