Admissions Visualizations

The admissions visualizations consist of six visuals that show the racial composition of the applicant, admissions, and enrollment pools in addition to admit rate, yield rate, and a final visual of applicant, admissions, and enrollment together by race.

The visuals show the change in racial composition at each point in the pipeline from application to enrollment from 2005 to 2017. Users can hover over the lines in the visuals to see the exact percent and count for each racial/ethnic category in a given year.

Applicants

The applicants visual shows the racial composition of the application pool from 2005 to 2017.

               

Admits

The admits visual shows the racial composition of the admissions pool from 2005 to 2017.

               

Enrolled/ New Registrants

The visual shows the racial composition for enrolled undergraduates (also known as new registrants) from 2005 to 2017.

               

Admit Rate

The admit rate shows out of all of those who applied what was the percent admitted to the university. This visual shows the admit rate by race from 2005 to 2017, and allows the user to filter by a single racial category.

               

Yield Rate

Yield rate shows of those admitted, what percent accepted the offer and enrolled at the institution. The visual shows the yield rate by race from 2005 to 2017, and allows the user to filter by a single racial category.

 

               

Applicants, Admits, and New Registrants by Race

This visual combines applicants, admits, and new registrants on a single graph from 2005 to 2017. The user must select a single racial/ethnic category to analyze the trends in composition for the applicant, admissions, and registrant pools.
