Total Enrollment: Black as a Percent of Total, 1996-2010

This report shows Black students enrolled as a percentage of the total by gender for 1996-2010.

Total Enrollment rates were calculated by dividing the number of Black students enrolled by the total number of students enrolled at Public Higher Education for academic years 1996-2010, the most recent years available. The total used for the denominator includes those enrolled with unknown genders and ethnicities. Data were obtained from each of the segments.

Data collection for Fall 2009 is in progress. As a result, more recent data than what is displayed may be available for some systems. Visit the Custom Data Reports for the most up-to-date data. Select the year needed from the drop-down list at the top of the options. Visit the Dates Available for availability for each type of data. The Sources and Timing of Data page has an approximate schedule for each type of data the Commission collects.
