In late July of 1972, a consortium of five organizations conducted a conference on the eighth Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) under the sponsorship of the National Center for Educational Statistics in the Office of Education. The conference had two very broad areas of concern: (1) to consider ways in which HEGIS data may be made available to the higher education community in a more timely fashion than is now the case, and (2) to consider ways in which the community may provide advice to NCES in a regular, ongoing, and informed manner. The recommendations of the conference suggest: (1) That NCES devote substantial resources and efforts to the continuation and expansion of projects to define and describe the postsecondary education universe and include all relevant sectors of that universe in its ongoing data collection activities. (2) That NCES establish a procedure whereby institutions wishing to restrict data dissemination must make a specific, written request. (3) That the planning commission for the HEGIS VIII Conference take positive and substantive steps to encourage the removal of data restrictions by those institutions that currently impose them. Following the recommendations, emphasis is placed on a background for HEGIS in general and a presentation of specific problems and questions considered by the participants. (MJM)
