In recent years, with the development of economy, the development level of higher education directly determines the number and quality of senior specialized talents in a region. However, the level of general higher education in different regions is not the same, and even has great differences. In order to further clarify the ordinary higher education development around the city difference and imbalance, we take He’nan province as an example and select eight related indicators(Number of Schools(unit); New Student Enrolment (person); Graduates (person); Degrees Conferred (Person); Number of Enrolment of Per 100,000 Inhabitants by Level (person) ; Govemment Appropriation for Education (100 million yuan) ; Budgetary Expenditure on Education (100 million yuan); Student-Teacher Ratio (Teacher =1).) to build the index system by using the factor analysis of multivariate statistical methods to study the comprehensive evaluation for 18 cities of He’nan province in 2017 the ordinary higher education level, which is to narrow the gap between local higher education between the city and comprehensively improve the level of higher education to provide the reference.
