Description
  • Abstract

    The Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) series was designed to provide comprehensive information on various aspects of postsecondary education in the United States and its territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside the United States. The HEGIS Fall Enrollment Component for 1973 sought enrollment data from 3,015 institutions of higher education both public and nonpublic (2-and 4-year) which is the only survey giving a national count of the numbers of students enrolled in these institutions. The data collected from the 50 states, District of Columbia, and outlying territories give counts of total enrollments by class level, sex, race, calendar system, type of accreditation, attendance status (full time vs. part time) and enrollments of first time students. All of these data are acquired in terms of head counts and full time equivalents, by state.
