New Freshman Characteristics: Totals

The data for the New Freshman Characteristics has been updated to include a total row on the percentiles and statistics report for the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses.

Kudos to the users who informed us regarding the missing row.

Enrollment Data: Fall 2010 Released

Fall 2010 Data
The Fall 2010 Official Enrollment Statistics and New Freshman Characteristics data has been loaded.

Race/Ethnicity (Multi) Data re-loaded
The Official Enrollment Report for Race/Ethnicity (Multi), the report which also breaks out students who report more than one Race/Ethnicity group, was reloaded. The data counting the international students was incorrect, though the number of affected students was quite low. It should now match the numbers found on the Data Warehouse.

Historical Student Headcounts
The Historical Student Headcounts page was also updated, and corrected. The graph shows only Twin Cities campus, previously the 2009-10 value had 57 extra students from the Rochester campus.

Fall Enrollment Map
We have released a new tool to coincide with the Fall 2010 data, the Enrollment Map. This tool maps the Official Enrollment Home Location Code (HLC) to a latitude and longitude, then using the Google Maps API, places a marker based upon the number of students at the corresponding HLC. Data can be viewed by Term, Campus, Level and College. It is a neat way to visualize the enrollment.
