Student Demographic Profile:

§ The number of female Americans enrolled was significantly higher than the number of males.  That was not only due to higher population figures for females: 7.4% of the 3+ female population was enrolled, compared to 5.9% of the 3+ male population.

§ The number of non-Hispanic whites enrolled grew.

§ Last year, 17% of  students were Hispanic, up from 11% in 2006. The corresponding figures for non-Hispanic whites were 58% and 67%, respectively, while the share of students who were black inched up from 18% to 19% during that time period.

§ The share of Hispanics enrolled was 6.8%, slightly above the national average of 6.7%. Hispanic females (7.6%) once again had a higher rate of enrollment than males (6%).

§ Black Americans demonstrated higher-than-average enrollment rates, at 8% of the 3+ population.  Female black Americans had a substantially higher enrollment rate (9.2% of the 3+ population) than their male counterparts (6.5%).

§ Asian Americans had the highest enrollment rates, at 9.4% overall. Contrary to the population at-large, the enrollment rate was higher among males (9.5%) than females (9.2%). However, given a larger population of females overall, the number of female Asian Americans enrolled was greater than the amount of males.
