Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) IX: Students Enrolled for Advanced Degrees, Fall 1974 (ICPSR 4279)

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) was designed to provide comprehensive information on various aspects of postsecondary education in the United States and its territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside the United States. The HEGIS Fall Enrollment Component for 1974 sought enrollment data for all public and nonpublic 2- and 4-year institutions and their branches for postbaccalaureate students enrolled for advanced degrees, both graduate and professional. The data cover information on enrollments by class level, number of full-time and part-time male and female students enrolled at various levels (graduate, undergraduate, etc.), sex, race, calendar system, type of accreditation, and enrollments of first-time students. All of these data were acquired in terms of head counts and full-time equivalents, by state.
