Fact Book

Introduction

The University of South Alabama Fact Book (Statistical Profile), 2020-2021 is the forty-second publication in a series, which began with the USA Fact Book for 1979-80. Production of the annual fact book has been an evolving process as data series are expanded and new topics are added. We hope that the publication has grown to meet the needs of the University community for information to support program planning and evaluation. We welcome all comments or suggestions for continuing to improve the publication.
