NOTE: This table shows, for example, that in 1997, a total of 9.4 percent of all Title IV postsecondary undergraduate institutions were public 4-year institutions, and that 10.4 percent of the Title IV postsecondary undergraduate institutions that awarded career education credentials were public 4-year institutions. 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. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
