Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1983 
140 p. 

Data on 1983 college and university enrollments and trends for the past few years are presented. Information is provided on higher education enrollments by control and level of institution, sex of students, and full- or part-time attendance status. Trends in enrollment during 1976-1983 for the 50 states and the District of Columbia are included. Data are included for first-time freshmen, undergraduate, graduate, first-time graduate, and first-professional students. The following types of postsecondary institutions are included: public, private, private nonprofit; and private proprietary institutions; as well as doctoral-level, comprehensive, general baccalaureate, specialized, two-year, and new institutions. In addition to full-and part-time enrollments, data are included on full-time equivalent of part-time enrollment. The following facts are highlighted: the number of two-year schools was up 5.4 percent, while the number of comprehensive and specialized institutions increased more than 2 percent each; two-year institutions accounted for most of the overall enrollment growth; between fall 1982 and 1983, virtually no change in part-time enrollment occurred; and the number of first-time freshmen declined. Appendices include information on the study methodology, definitions of the types of institutions, and the questionnaire. (SW)
