NOTE: This table shows, for example, that 58.5 percent of the subbaccalaureate career education credentials awarded by less-than-4-year Title IV institutions in 1997 were awarded by public 2-year institutions. There are no standard errors for this table because it is based on population counts. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
