Allman, Katherine A.
A number of publications, articles, and data bases that contain data related to the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems' (NCHEMS) Statewide Measures Inventory are identified and described. This document does not contain the actual data, but it does describe and reference various sources where the data can be found. In addition, it provides information about: (1) how the data are organized, (2) the kinds of information given (for example, data on personal income, number of high school graduates, enrollments in postsecondary education institutions), (3) the level of aggregation (for example, by region, state, postsecondary education institution), (4) the years for which the data are available, and (5) those measures in the Statewide Measures Inventory which correspond to the data referenced.
