NOTE: This table shows, for example, that 29.2 percent of less-than-4-year Title IV institutions in 1997 were public 2-year institutions, and that 30.9 percent of the less-than-4-year Title IV institutions awarding career education credentials in 1997 were public 2-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.
