University Enrolment by Institution


Are there any sources of FTE (full-time equivalent) enrolment figures by institution? These data are obviously reported to STC, but reported by province, program, etc., not by institution. Since the data are reported publicly by each institution on their websites, is there some other reason why STC apparently doesn't report the data that way?


-BC's numbers are available here: <>
-Have you tried the CAUT Almanac? Here’s an extract from the 2012-2013 edition, showing FTE enrolment by school. 2002 – 2014 available at: <>

-AUCC has current stats in charts - they should have back years: <>
-The information seems to be derived from the University and College Academic Staff System (UCASS), which is no longer an active survey; and the Postsecondary Student Information System (PSIS), from which data are extracted from administrative files.PSIS does have some content available in CANSIM:<>. According to the PSIS survey page under Data Disclosure: PSIS produces a wide range of outputs that contain estimates for various student or postsecondary institution characteristics. Results are published for institutions from which we have received written consent. For data covering the student population, the following rules are applied: only aggregate data are released and no microdata file is available. For tabular data, cells are random rounded to base 3.
