State higher education capital appropriations received per FTE compared to surrounding states and national averages


Numerator: Total State Appropriations for Higher Education
Denominator: Full time equivalency of Missouri public institutions

Disaggregation: Institutional Sector,
Required comparison for surrounding states and national average uses slightly different calculation of capital appropriations per SHEEO.


State appropriations for Higher Education-Total: Revenue set aside by legislative body as detailed in the Missouri Higher Education Funding formula for core institutional mission expenses (operating), strategic initiatives, and performance funding. This measure does not include capital appropriations.

FTE: The full-time equivalent (FTE) of students is a single value providing a meaningful combination of full time and part time students. IPEDS data products currently have two calculations of FTE students, one using fall student headcounts and the other using 12-month instructional activity.

Institutional Sector


MDHE Fiscal Affairs, SHEF, Grapevine (potential usage for benchmark data)

Limitations and Issues:

- Data reported in some available resources as appropriated as opposed to delivered. Data should be tracked by both appropriated and delivered if possible.
- In reports and for historical context it should be reported primarily as delivered and secondary, if needed, as appropriated
