TABLE 36.-A general view of the relative number of classical and scientific students in
American colleges and universities, &c.—Continued.
RATIO OF COLLEGE STUDENTS TO POPULATION. From the comparison of the number of students in the college course reported from each geographical section with the total population of each section it appears that in the North Atlantic division there is one college student for every 1,286 inhabitants; in the South Atlantic division there is one for every 1,600 inhabitants; in the Northern Central division there is one for every 1,273 inbabitants; in the Southern Central division there is one for every 1,532 inhabitants, and in the Western division there is one for every 1,031 inhabitants. COMPARATIVE STATISTICS OF ATTENDANCE ON CLASSICAL AND SCIENTIFIC COURSE
FOR THE LAST FIVE YEARS. The following table shows the attenuance for the last five years on the classical and scientific courses of colleges and universities, and at institutions wholly devoted to scientific instruction, as reported to this Office from the States of the North Atlantic division and from certain individual institutions in other sections.
The section specified was selected as not only answering best the requirement of completeness of statistics, but as the next to the most populous, though the smallest. Unable, from the magnitude of the work, to give in this report the attendance at the insti. tutions of the whole country with the same exhaustive fulness, the Office has confined itself to giving the statistics of a few institutions of each of the other geographical sections, selecting those that have reported most fully.
