Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) XIX, Fall 1984: Residence and Migration of College Students (ICPSR 3134) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) series 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. This data collection contains information about the residence and migration of college students, elicited as part of the HEGIS XIX package. The package was distributed to approximately 3,379 colleges and universities and their branches located in the United States and its outlying territories. Only students enrolled at the institution for the first time at each of the following class levels were reported: (1) undergraduate, (2) graduate, (3) first-professional, and (4) unclassified. Variables provide information on enrollment, institution name, state of residence, part- and full-time status, and transfers. Information regarding institution name, enrollment number, accreditation type, sex, and race of students is included in this study as well.
