for the 2005-2006 fiscal year
Selected AAU public institutions
Summary and interpretation
Table of Figures
Technical notes and data sources
- All figures are for a single fiscal year.
- Data compiled by the University of Virginia, from a November 2005 query to all public members of the
American Association of Universities. All members providing data by February 2006 are listed.
- Except as noted in comments, state appropriation figures exclude hospitals and extension services (e.g., agricultural). If an appropriation
was changed after the original allocation, that change is reflected in the amount reported. State appropriation figures do NOT include tuition
- Enrollment figures are based on Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) enrollment definitions but limited to in-state residents. Institutions were asked to use residency
status before any adjustments were made for out-of-state (OOS) students paying in-state tuition. For example, OOS graduate teaching/
research assistants changed to in-state status for tuition purposes should not have been counted here.
- FTE enrollment is estimated based on full-time headcount plus one-third of the part-time headcount.
