Title:  Enrollment in Higher Education: Fall 1995
Description: This report presents detailed tabulations for fall 1995, and historical comparisons with previous years on selected variables, for students enrolled in postsecondary institutions in the United States. The data are from the Fall Enrollment survey, a part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) of the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The data reported here underestimate the number of students enrolled in postsecondary institutions throughout the year, particularly for less-than-4-year institutions. For example, data from the Institutional Characteristics survey for the same year 1 indicate that fall enrollment in all postsecondary institutions represented 67.4 percent of the full-year enrollment 79.4 percent for 4-year institutions and 55.5 percent for 2-year institutions. For IHEs, fall enrollment represented 69.9 percent of the full-year enrollment 79.5 percent for 4-year institutions and 58.7 percent for 2-year institutions.
