US higher education enrolment growth to slow through 2022

March 3, 2014

A recent report released by the US Department of Education predicts that PSE enrolment in the US will grow by 14% from fall 2011 to fall 2022, but that the rate of growth will be “considerably smaller” than the 45% increase seen by the previous 14-year period. The projected enrolment increase is a percentage point lower than what the Education Department predicted in its report published last year on PSE enrolments from 2010 to 2021. The yearly reports also make predictions on elementary and secondary education enrolments, and the data on PSE is offered by characteristics such as students’ age, sex, and race or ethnicity.
