Projections of Education Statistics to 2014, published September 2005.

Section 7. Expenditures of Public Degree-Granting Institutions: Introduction

Current-fund expenditures in both public 4-year and public 2-year degree-granting institutions are projected to increase in constant dollars between school years 200001 and 201314.

Three alternative sets of projections

Middle, low, and high sets of projections were produced for total current-fund expenditures, as well as for educational and general expenditures, for both public 4-year and public 2-year degree-granting institutions.

About the projections

Each set of projections is based on alternative assumptions concerning economic growth and receipts to state and local governments. Many other factors that may affect future expenditures were not considered in the production of these projections. See appendix A for more details.
