Abstract

Postsecondary education in the United States encompasses a wide array of educational opportunities and programs. This report provides a detailed statistical overview of the approximately 16.6 million undergraduates enrolled in U.S. postsecondary institutions in 1999-2000. It includes a discussion of the undergraduate population's diversity and the possible impact of this diversity on persistence in postsecondary education. The report is based on data from the 1999-2000 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:2000), a survey representing all students enrolled in postsecondary education in 1999-2000
