Standard & Poor's Rating Services released its annual reports on median ratios for public and nonprofit private institutions this week. The rating agency found that of the 163 public institutions it rates, the number with negative outlooks (10 percent) is more than the number of institutions with positive outlooks (7 percent), a trend continuing from last year. Meanwhile, 81 percent of all rated public institutions have stable outlooks.
Among the 263 private institutions the agency rates, the number of institutions with negative outlooks (11 percent) is more than double the number of institutions with positive outlooks (5 percent).
