Methods and Techniques of Enrollment Forecasting.
Brinkman, Paul T.; McIntyre, Chuck
New Directions for Institutional Research, v24 n1 p67-80 Spr 1997
There is no right way to forecast college enrollments; in many instances, it will be prudent to use both qualitative and quantitative methods. Methods chosen must be relevant to questions addressed, policies and decisions at stake, and time and talent required. While it is tempting to start quickly, enrollment forecasting is an area in which careful preparation is worthwhile. (MSE)
