Difference in percentages of female and male undergraduate fall enrollment in degree-granting institutions, by race/ethnicity: Selected years, 1976–2008


Difference in percentages of female and male undergraduate fall enrollment in degree-granting institutions, by race/ethnicity: Selected years, 1976–2008

NOTE: Data from 1976 through 1990 are for institutions of higher education, while later data are for degree-granting institutions. Degree-granting institutions grant associate's or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs. The degree-granting classification is very similar to the earlier higher education classification, but it includes more 2-year colleges and excludes a few higher education institutions that do not grant degrees. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
