Enrollment data

Jonah Newman, writing in The Chronicle of Higher Education, shares some enrollment data recently released from the U. S. Department of Education.

Enrollment (Fall 2012):
  • Total enrollment at postsecondary institutions fell about 2 percent from 2011, to 21.1 million.
  • The total number of undergraduates fell slightly, to 18.2 million. Here’s a breakdown of where those undergraduates were enrolled, by sector:
  • The total number of graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in for-profit colleges fell nearly 8 percent from 2011, while enrollment at public colleges dropped 1.6 percent and enrollment at private nonprofit colleges rose less than 1 percent.
  • There are about five women for every four men in higher education—a ratio that has barely changed in more than a decade.
