Information about the data source and sample profiles are provided. Additionally, the research objectives for the paper are listed, and the questionnaire that was used to assess the research objectives is provided. The paper addresses the following questions: (1) What are the public service value orientations of MPA (Masters in Public Administration) and CPM (Certified Public Administration) graduates who are currently employed as state administrators? (2) What are the professional behavioral dimensions of these administrators? (3) What are the orientations of these administrators toward public Administration education? and (4) Do administrators with MPA/CPM education significantly differ from state administrators without compatible training/education? Results of the analyses are reported under the following headings: Value Orientations of MPA and CPM Graduates; Professional Behavioral Attributes among MPA and CPM Graduates; Public Administration Professionalism among MPA and CPM Graduates; and the Differences between the General Sample, MPA, and CPM Graduates.
