NOTE: This table shows, for example, that in 1997, there were 622 public 4-year undergraduate institutions; that 578 public 4-year undergraduate institutions awarded career education credentials; and that 92.9 percent of all public 4-year undergraduate institutions awarded career education credentials. This table excludes institutions that award only graduate or first-professional credentials. There are no standard errors for this table because it is based on population counts.
