Meeting the Challenges of Population Growth and the Future Demand for Postsecondary Education PDF - This policy brief tracks state-level population changes in the 18-and-older population and addresses the implications of those changes on the demand for postsecondary education over the next 15 years. Projected demographic and enrollment statistics are provided for all 50 states, and various state examples throughout the brief illustrate the higher education policy issues that will arise over the next decade. (Mario C. Martinez, Education Commission of the States, August 2004)...

The Changing Face of Massachusetts - The demographic make-up of Massachusetts has changed greatly over the past 20 years, driven largely by the increased number and diversity of immigrants. This report finds that one in seven residents of the state were born in another country, a 40% increase in less than 15 years, and a figure that is expected to rise in the next decade. The report discusses the educational attainment of new immigrants and the effects this has on their earning power, their distribution, growth and the increasing number of residents who have limited English-speaking skills and the impact this may have on the Massachusetts economy. (Free registration is required to access report.) (Andrew M. Sum, Johan Uvin, Ishwar Khatiwada, Dana Ansel, Paulo Tobar, Frimpomaa Ampaw, Sheila Palma and Greg Leiserson, MassINC, June 2005)...
