What We Know About Community College Low-Income and Minority Student Outcomes: Descriptive Statistics from National Surveys
MetadataShow full item record
This report summarizes the national statistics on access and attainment by low-income and minority community college students. The data come from the National Center for Education Statistics’ (NCES) Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) annual surveys of all postsecondary educational institutions and the NCES Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study 1996-2001 (BPS:96/01). The latter follows for six years a nationally representative sample of all first-time beginning college students from the 1995-96 school year, with follow-up surveys in 1998 and 2001.
