Blog 5: States with Largest Student Bodies in Relation to Population

  1. This article analyzes the change in student enrollment rate year to year and how much it has dropped post-recession. I chose this article because it’s interesting to me how the economy is now stable, but enrollment is still dropping and tuition costs are rising.
  2. As it is directly stated in the text, Fractl, a market research firm, used 12-month enrollment data from the National Center for Education Statistics data center. No information is provided on how research was conducted.
  3. If states like Iowa and Arizona are inflated because of online enrollment, why didn’t the researchers modify that variable so that it was a true reflection of the actual population? What are the other states that have growing online enrollment rates? Is this a result of lesser tuition costs or because of the job market in these states?
