This study provides the most accurate and comprehensive examination of participation trends to date. We analyze data from almost every higher education institution in the country and utilize data and methods that are free of the shortcomings present in previous research on this subject. A 10-year NCAA sample containing 738 NCAA colleges and universities is examined over the 1995-96 to 2004-05 period. In addition, a complete four-year sample containing 1,895 higher education institutions is examined over the 2001-02 to 2004-05 period. Appended are: (1) Comparison with Alternative Reports; (2) Sample Overview and Data Corrections; (3) Cross Country and Track and Field; and (4) Title IX and Athletics. (Contains 15 tables and 5 figures.)
