This collection of papers is intended to help develop a rationale for the gathering and use of data in 2-year colleges. Problems of data as experienced by a state director, a college administrator, an institutional research office, and a national community junior college information service are discussed. Some conclusions were: (1) state agencies have planning and coordination as their fundamental purpose; (2) to be effective, state agencies need to define what information is needed, and how it can be made available; (3) institutional research is the means to successfully plan community college goals and purposes; (4) a college cannot afford not to know about its students; (5) an effective information system has potential in terms of making projections and designing models; and (6) to develop self-knowledge, a college should have an information analyst and an ability to listen.
