MetadataShow full item record
This report summarizes statistics on access and attainment in higher education, focusing particularly on community college students, using data from the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88), which follows a nationally representative sample of individuals who were eighth graders in the spring of 1988. A sample of these respondents was surveyed through four follow-ups in 1990, 1992, 1994 and 2000. The 2000 survey collected information on both education and job outcomes of respondents. The NELS:88 database includes transcripts of individuals in the sample who enrolled in any postsecondary education.
