Rodriguez, Esther M., Ed.; Lenth, Charles S., Ed.
This compendium provides a guide to data collections in higher education focusing on sources that are national in scope, and updated and made available on a regular or periodic basis including surveys, data bases, reports, and statistical digests. These sources are divided into nine broad categories, each category contains separate entries for each data source and each entry provides a brief description of the source, lists or outlines the major data collected or reported, provides information on data availability, lists current uses and publications and provides the source or contact. The nine categories are: (1) Institutional Descriptors; (2) Student Data; (3) Student Longitudinal Data; (4) Student Financial Aid; (5) Financial Data; (6) Tuition and Fee Charges; (7) Faculty, Staffing and Salaries; (8) Physical Facilities, Libraries and Assets; (9) Sourcebooks and Comparative Studies. An appendix contains a blank form for reporting data sources to be included in the compendium or for making changes in sources already listed. (JB)
