NOTE: Data include unclassified graduate students. Trend tabulations of institutions of higher education data are based on institutions that were accredited by an agency or association that was recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, or recognized directly by the Secretary of Education. The new degree-granting classification is very similar to the earlier higher education classification, except that it includes some additional institutions, primarily 2-year colleges, and excludes a few higher education institutions that did not award degrees. Data for 1999 were imputed using alternative procedures. (See Guide to Sources for details.) Detail may not sum to totals due to rounding.
