Sampled Universe
All postsecondary institutions in operation in 1991 in the United States and its outlying areas.
Sampling
The data were collected from two sources: (1) the Fall Enrollment survey which was used to collect data from the universe of institutions accredited at the collegiate level and from all institutions not accredited at the collegiate level, but which offered a bachelor's, master's, doctoral, or first professional degree, and (2) the Consolidated survey, which was used to collect enrollment data from the remaining four-year, two-but-less-than-four-year, and public less-than-two-year institutions, and a sample of private less-than-two-year institutions. The enrollment data collected via the Consolidated survey were integrated with the fall enrollment survey data.
