ICED Data Bank on International Programs of Higher Educational Institutions.
Brumberg, Stephan F.
The Data Bank is an on-going information system that collects and stores data on international programs conducted by U.S. accredited 4-year colleges and universities. Information collected is coded and stored on punch cards and processed by computer. Each program is coded in 2 ways. Data cards are prepared that contain quantitative information concerning each program (type of program, source of funding, foreign area of focus, number of people involved yearly, etc.), as well as several characteristics of the U.S. university administering the program. The second coding method consists of condensing information about each international program into a verbal description that is punched on cards. Such paragraph descriptions, when stored on punch cards, enable the Data Bank to produce selected program inventories in terms of variables such as program type, subject matter, foreign area focus, U.S. sponsoring institution, funding source, and so forth.
