\1\Numbers of undergraduates may not equal figures reported in other tables, since these data are based on a sample survey. Includes all postsecondary institutions.
\2\Includes students who reported they were awarded aid, but did not specify the source or type of aid.
\3\Details on federal and nonfederal work study participants are not available.
\4\Excludes persons not reported by race/ethnicity.
\5\Includes students who were single, divorced, or widowed.
