A series of data tables and graphs provides a longitudinal summary of information about the students at Los Angeles City College who earned an Associate of Arts degree (AA) from 1964 through 1980. The first table offers information about selected student characteristics, including number of graduates, percent of total enrollment who graduated, number and percent of males and females, and number and percent completing work in the Spring semester. The second table indicates students' stated majors at graduation, grouped and totaled by department. The final table reveals the numbers of students majoring in eight curricular areas, i.e., business, fine arts, sciences, communications, social sciences, vocational-health, vocational-technical, and college transfer. Graphs corresponding to these tables make the trends in the data over this 16-year period apparent. Analysis of the data reveals that: (1) the number of AA degrees awarded annually rose from approximately 900 in the mid-1960's to a peak of 1,719 in 1976, and then dropped to 1,243 in 1979 and 1,251 in 1980; (2) the number of graduates has amounted to between 5% and 10% of the total Spring enrollment; (3) approximately 33% of the graduates completed their work in the Fall semester, while the remaining students finished in the Spring; and (4) since 1972, more females than males have earned associate degrees.
