Community Comparisons:
Fall Enrollment (Residency) to Population

What the data is: Credit-student enrollment by residency, by count and as a percentage of total credit-student enrollment, and community population, by count and as a percentage of the total population of the HCC service area.

How to use the data: Look at each row and compare the enrollment percentage to the population percentage. Bridgeport, for example, is the home of 47.9 percent of HCC students but only represents 31.4 percent of the HCC service area population.
