1The college attendance percentages reported here for the Oregon class of 1995 are slightly higher than those reported in the survey report issued in 1996 (e.g., 19.5% for OUS compared to 18.5% originally reported).  A subsequent analysis of the class of 1995 survey data corrected a previously undetected sampling error.
2 Includes Oregon colleges which are not fully accredited by the state or are controlled by out-of-state institutions.
