Abstract:The purpose of this data collection was to provide a more accurate measure of the racial/ethnic enrollment in postsecondary institutions in the United States than was previously available. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) collects racial/ethnic enrollment data from higher education institutions on an annual basis. Some institutions do not report these data, and their ''unknown'' categories have previously been distributed in direct proportion to the ''knowns.'' This resulted in lower than accurate figures for the racial/ethnic categories. With the advent of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), NCES has attempted to eliminate this problem by distributing all race/ethnicity unknown students through a two-stage process. First, the differences between reported totals and racial/ethnic details were allocated on a gender and institutional basis by distributing the differences in direct proportion to reported distributions. The second-stage distribution was designed to eliminate the remaining ''race/ethnicity'' unknowns. The procedure was to accumulate the reported racial/ethnic total enrollments by state, level, control, and gender
Universe:All postsecondary institutions in operation in 1994 in the United States and its outlying areas.
