This report presents national normative data on characteristics of students entering colleges as first-time freshmen during the summer and fall of 1970. It is the fifth in the series of annual reports which was initiated in 1966 as part of the Cooperative Institutional Research Program conducted by the Office of Research of the American Council on Education.

As the first step in implementing this longitudinal research program in any given year, a survey is made of entering freshmen through administration of the Student Information Form. These data are weighted to provide a normative picture of the college freshmen population for use by persons engaged in guidance, counseling, administration, educational research, and manpower studies
