The main purpose of the investigation has been built around the central hypothesis which may be stated as one basic question. Have the economic stages through which the country has passed affected the home economics enrollment at Prairie View A & M College? In order to answer this question, several other related questions quite likely may need to be answered. For example, in what ways has the general college enrollment been affected by the social, economic and technical changes? What has been the affect, if any, on the enrollment in home economics at the college?

The investigator regards this study as important because no other analysis in the form of a thesis has been made, thus far, in home economics at Prairie View A & M College.

Although the enrollment pattern of Prairie View home economics students may change from year to year, it is the hope of the investigator that the data revealed in this study may be of some value to those who are affiliated with enrollment.

These data may or may not show some indications as to the reasons for fluctuation in the enrollment pattern during the 38 year study period.
