Data tables and graphs illustrate trends in enrollment and student characteristics at Los Angeles City College (LACC) for the years 1972 through 1981. First, six tables present statistics on: (1) fall semester enrollment broken down according to day/evening status, sex, full-/part-time status, freshman/sophomore status, first-time/continuing status, age, and ethnic groups; (2) admissions classifications of LACC students (i.e., first-time freshmen, first-time transfers, returning transfers, returning students, and continuing students); (3-5) LACC new enrollments according to public and private feeder high schools; and (6) first-time transfers to LACC from foreign countries. Next, ten graphs are provided to illustrate trends revealed in these data. Finally, observations on the findings are presented. Total enrollment over the ten-year period varied less than 5% from the average if the years 1974 and 1975 are omitted. Females outnumbered males in all years except 1974 and 1977, with the percentage of females peaking at 55% in 1977. Ethnic distributions have changed significantly over the period, with a sharp decrease in White enrollments (from 38% in 1972 to 22% in 1981) and steady increases in Hispanic and Asian enrollments. Median age has (with the exception of 1974 and 1975) increased steadily from 24 to 26 years of age. The percentage of students transferring from a foreign high school or college has almost doubled since 1975 (from 12% to 22%). (AYC)
